Cooking For Mr. Latte by Amanda Hesser

A food writer tells her own love story through vignettes of the wonderful meals she had during her courtship and engagement with a man who nearly lost her by putting Equal in his latte.

Amanda Hesser is so charming! Cooking for Mr. Latte was both romantic and mouthwatering, filled with funny, honest, and delightful anecdotes about food, dining, relationships, and love. Each chapter offers recipes that seem accessible and sound absolutely delicious. You bet I will be making her Kadjemoula (North African Lamb and Beef Stew) once the fall weather hits–I plan to adapt it to my slow cooker. Oh yum.

  1. What! No Posts!!
    Here it is Friday night and nobody has anything to say? …Well, maybe I can take advantage of this free space to let you-all know what I am about, (as an author).

    #1.) I’m a lifetime lover of mysteries, ever since at the age of maybe 8-Years old my mother handed me the first of 1 or 2-Dozen, Alfred Hitchcock paperback mystery-series short stories …not to mention, Rod Serling’s “Twilight Zone” on TV.

    #2.) What can I say? …I love the “Real Old West”, and have been an active member of 3-Western Historical Societies since 1993, (in which two have recently merged. But do you want to know the amazing thing? Forget all the Hollywood Westerns from their inceptions in the 1920’s on up to “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”, Young Guns, Wyatt Earp, and Tombstone, (and-yes all have their detail inaccuracies). Except because non-fiction is stranger than anything those movie writers could ever conjure up, some deserve an “A” for effort.

    #3.) As a 21st-Century author my “Groove”, is to combine historically accurate but based on true situation stories, with a mystererious twist and while I’m at it, add a little modern C. S. I. into the fold just to lead up to, and wrap up the ending.
