If you're like me, you settle for the best you can manage when it comes to cooking eggs. They're tricky, and it's much easier to order them than to make them the way you like. My second most difficult egg struggle has been with fried eggs. I like a perfectly cooked but not burnt egg … Continue reading How to Make the Perfect Fried Egg
The food of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s in all of its photogenic glory endlessly fascinates me. It's not just the pictures.
