My current drink of choice:

I really wish I could:
Have no money or family worries. Then, I might travel the world.
My "Go-to" dinner party dish:
It varies with the season. It's hard to beat a long simmered bolognese in the winter, and grilled tuna/swordfish/salmon in the summer.
My favorite comfort food:
It also varies with the season. In winter, I'd have to say Mac 'N Cheese. In summer, a perfect BLT with vine ripe tomatoes and avocado.
My top 5 favorite restaurants:
Providence. Canele. Apple Pan. Hungry Cat. El Gran Burrito.
My most tattered cookbooks:
Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking; Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking; Judy Rodgers, the Zuni Cafe Cookbook; Susanne Goin, Sunday Suppers at Lucques.
