October 18, 2017

Seems like the perfect image for this bright Fall day.  And a beloved old recipe.

And here’s another small reminder of how much things have changed.

Chocolate Chinchilla and Other Delights

October 3, 2017

I recently got a note from a woman who is moving and cannot take her collection of Gourmet Magazines along.  She’s trying to give away her issues from 1970-1998 and has found no takers.  Any interest?  Reach out and I’ll connect you.

If an entire collection just seems like too much, here’s a small taste of intriguing recipes from the October 1974 issue.  I simply couldn’t resist the allure of something called “Chocolate Chinchilla.”
