My Quote in the New York Times!

A few weeks ago, I reviewed THE I HATE TO COOK BOOK: 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION by Peg Bracken. I thought it was an entertaining read, but I didn't find a lot of recipes that were a good fit for my family.

Much to my surprise, a reporter from the New York Times contacted me a few days ago to talk about my reaction to this cookbook. She was interested in finding out what "younger" moms thought of the recipes in this revised cookbook. (I informed her that I wasn't so sure that I was still considered a "younger" mom at 41 years of age, but she assured me I was still young enough!)

So, if you're interested, here's a link to the article. My quote appears at the very end!

How fun! Younger . . .you betcha! You certainly qualify as younger to me as I have a daughter that is older than 41. Gads, I must be . . . . well, lets say older than dirt and leave it at that. Good going, kiddo! You made us proud.

Well, you speaketh the truth. Canned mushrooms are totally disgusting! Anyway, this is pretty awesome that you have achieved fame. I am curious whether you will see a spike in your readership (definitely from all those canned mushroom haters!)
