Whenever, WHEN-EV-AH, my brother and lovely sister-in-law come for a visit we learn something new.
How to make sausage.
How to make upscale, gourmet homemade pizza.
How to make a killer green salad.
How to make bread dough in a food processor. (That was then; we don’t do that one anymore.)
How to make Esther Cunningham’s Orange Marmalade Cake.
How to make prime rib that sits in the fridge for three days unwrapped and forms a crust.
How to make healthy mushroom soup.
How to grill red peppers and skin them.
I used to think my brother was a genius.
Then he gave me a decade of Cook’s Illustrated yearbooks. As I browsed through them, I recognized familiar recipes and procedures. Ha!! He’s just a good reader – always has been. Naw, seriously, he’d make a great baker if he wasn’t busy earning a living singing.
But this year, my friend……this year he’s outdone himself. Loaf after loaf after loaf. Hungry sons scoop it up!
Melt in your mouth taste.
