Lovin’ Spoonful

I just published a review of Ina Garten’s new book Cooking for Jeffrey (Clarkston Potter; $35) in the Detroit Jewish News.

The book cover is a sweet photo of Garten and Jeffrey with one of his favorite desserts. The Devil’s Food Cake with Coffee Meringue Buttercream is a “showstopper,” according to Garten, who loves the combination of moist chocolate cake and the light buttercream frosting — although  the Pecan Rum Raisin Ice Cream and the Chocolate Creme Brulee look equally scrumptious. The book’s dedication sums up the premise: “For Jeffrey, who makes everything possible.”

Here is a link which features recipes for perfect potato pancakes and the most Googled brisket recipe ever.

Be Green in 2017

The Pantone Color Institute has spoken for 2017, and green will be the color trend of the year in fashion and decor. It’s neither hunter green nor kelly green, but a leafy green like nature. So don’t be green with envy. Be like Kermit — “It’s easy being green.”

Here are the thoughts from Pantone:
