The Tardy Food Blogger

A girl has to work…

For the few dozen of you who check in on my blog, I offer sincere apologies for offering nothing but the same old picture of dinner rolls. Thanksgiving seems so long ago now.

But, you’ll be happy to know that at least I’ve been keeping busy with my personal chef work, so I have that going for me.

A brief recap:

  • I “dry-brined” the turkey this year after reading a post on the Epicurious blog by Rick Rodgers, a turkey-day expert. I added some spices and a good smear of lemon-garlic butter before putting on the Weber to roast. I thought it was disappointingly dry. I’m not sure if it’s the method or simply that free range turkeys are just a bit, well, chewy. Remind me to try a different bird next year.
  • I was inspired to make big, fat cookies after looking at my friend Anna’s blog, Cookie Madness. More on that later.
  • I’ve been digesting the heated discussion about the Bon Appetit magazine redesign. I personally like the new look. Change is a good thing.

We should all be like Martha, who not only has her own blog these days, but hires people to write it for her.

    I found your blog today and am enjoying it a lot, especially the great photo work. Re the new Bon Apettit: Yuck! The font is too small for aging eyes. I think they are courting the younger audience.
