I really wish I could:
Teach my dog to remove thyme leaves from the stems.
My favorite comfort food:
Pasta - Carbonara, Pesto, Sorrentino, Amatriciana, Vongole - you name it.
My most tattered cookbooks:
Marcella Hazan - it's in several sections now. Not tattered, but very well used this summer, Sunday Suppers at Lucques.
