If there was ever a foodie Home Depot, it would be called Sur La Table. I confess it is the one store I have a weakness for. Some women struggle with going into Target and walking out with numerous unplanned purchases. I have the same struggle, but it’s at Sur La Table. Yes, it could be so very easy to not walk in. But I have to. You see Sur La Table has Cooking Classes. If you struggle to boil water or just want to learn, they have a calendar set up (and even occasionally offer sales) just with classes. If there were just one class I would recommend everyone to take, it’s the Knife Skills class. After that feel free. You’ll walk away with solid recipes or the knowledge that you should not try this at home (Yes, sushi class I am speaking to you). I’ve taken more than a dozen Sur La Table Classes. They’ve all been excellent….
Carbs. There are few things that bring joy to our lives like carbs. It’s instant gratification. Sometimes it’s later regret. Many diets tell us we should eliminate them when possible, if that’s the case, then we should cherish the carbs we are allowed to have.
English muffins from the classic white and orange package. Yum. Breakfast, lunch or dinner (in pizza form of course) are my favorites no matter how old I get. I recently bought myself a book to which I treasure, Bouchon Bakery. If you are a native New Yorker or Californian, then this place is the stuff of myth and legend. They have a recipe in there for English muffins, but I would have to start a week in advance. Not going to happen. They can do their magic. I’m hungry now….
