November Cookbook of the Month Club Cracks the "Gourmet" Vault

I've had this book a few years, recipes are fine, but the actual book construction is/was terrible. The spine started coming apart when it was less than 2 years old. I took it back to Barns and Noble but got noothing but sympathy there. This book was not mistreated and not used that much. It sits on the shelf with rubber bands atound it to keep the pages in.

On the First Date, Who Pays?

With free time so precious why would you commit an entire evening to someone you've never met? That's nuts, go to lunch, happy hour or meet for a coffee. If it clicks then go have dinner

Grilled Calamari with Braised Fennel and Polenta

This looked really really good on the computer but it just didn't work for me. I love all the ingredients but the final combination was uninspiring.
