With the hectic holiday season upon us, the SIMMER blog is on hiatus through the end of the year. Join us in 2011 for more on cooking, eating, reading, writing, and of course, the release of THE KITCHEN DAUGHTER!
(And if you're enjoying the more relaxed pace of the pre- or post-holiday doldrums, check out the extensive archives at right -- categories like "entertaining", "ice cream", and "sweet" make it easy to find what most interests you in the posts of the past two years. Take a little tour!)
(Insider stat info: "duck" is by far the most popular. Really! What is it about duck?)
