*When I'm alone, my perfect meal is a grilled steak and a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.
**She also wrote another of my favorite quotes from a cookbook. I'm paraphrasing her opening to This Can't be Tofu:
I was shopping at my local grocery store, and I put a block of tofu in my cart. A man who was going by stopped and said: "Tofu. My wife doesn't have a good recipe for that. Do you have one?" I thought about it for a minute, then replied: "Well, unfortunately, the recipe I usually use is this. Leave it in the refrigerator until it is past it's expiration date, then throw it out and buy a new one."
His response was: "Darn. That's my wife's recipe, too."
