Carefree 101 Cooking Terms… Welcome to 2007! It’s time for resolutions and I’m ashamed to admit I’ve already broken one of my top four promises to myself. (Someday, in a far off land where time is on my side, I really will get the CG to the editor early.) The other three resolutions are the same as they’ve always been: Be slow to judge, be quick to forgive, and practice, practice, practice being patient. Dang, that last one is always SUCH a pain!

Once, after tasting a potato dish that was so good it knocked me sideways, I hauled out a pen and notebook then and there to scribble down the recipe.
Did I mention this was during a formal wedding reception, complete with tiny baby orchids, tuxes and a full orchestra? Clearly, I have recipe issues and the only way to deal with it is to of course, find even more to share with you. Thank goodness I still have friends in Delta I can steal ideas from on a regular basis. To read the rest of this column click here
