This week my recipes are pulled from Mark Bittman’s How to Cook everything (softcover, yellow cover). I’ve owned this book for well over two years, but never really tried to cook regularly from it. I like most of the recipes I’ve tried; and yet I seem completely unable to cook the recipes as written. I’m always changing something — adding an ingredient, replacing, etc.
