You guys, I am so crazy for this series of cookbooks written by best friends, who are chefs and artists. They love to cook together, so they bought a house (by a canal) with rooms for both to use as art studios...and a kitchen!! Everday they cook lunch together and these books are the result—home cooking inspiration by home cooks for home cooks!

Once Halloween is over, I get really really excited for deep fall and deeply delicious comfort food.  So do Melissa and Christopher- we can’t wait to make for you dishes like Mushroom Ragu on Polenta, and Pommes Anna (apple galette), and then nudge you tastily towards the holidays with Chocolate Gingerbread, French Cheese Puffs, “Neenie’s” Sourdough-Sage Stuffing, Grand Marnier Souffle, and even simple Eggs En Cocotte (ramekins) for the New Year.  Will we try the girls’  Buche de Noel for you??  Come on over November 16 and find out!  —Sandy
