In honor of just having had my first #19 at Langer’s I post this list (although I won’t be switching #s there anytime soon)…

My mom actually taught me a couple of these. Nice collection of classics for your cooking pleasure….

To which I would add the eternally loathsome “mouthfeel”, a particular favorite of the wanna be food blogger…

Been eating with this beautiful family since I first moved to L.A.  If you haven’t had their cochinita pipil, you haven’t had cochinita pibil.  James Beard award winners too…

I see a field trip in my future….

Personally I’m freaked out by the artifically “pretty” fruits & vegies found in chain markets. Shiny does not equal tasty.

What more can I say that needs saying…..

I like all of these (although I prefer my eggs in olive oil), particularly the one about make everything from scratch once.  And, btw, home made stock will ruin you for all other (and it’s super easy to do….)
