Holy crap, have you guys seen the October issue of Food & Wine???

Well, if you’re as nerdtastic as me, you have. And it’s AWESOME. I seriously just marked up about half of the recipes in there as stuff I want to make IMMEDIATELY. Provençal lamb stew? Québécois grilled cheese and bacon sandwich? And oh yeah, Jacques Pepin’s white bean & ham stew? ABSOLUTELY.

I frickin’ LOVE fall.


Hey There, Social Media!

Just a quick post today to say a couple of things.

First of all, MPC is now on Facebook. Please take a moment and say you “like” me!

Second, and possibly even awesome-er, you’ll soon be able to read MPC on your Kindle! (It’s still pending review by the deities, so I’ll post a preview link when they’ve given their approval.)

And finally, I just posted the firstrecipe in a new section called Summer Specials on the Recipes page: Greek Festival Chicken. I just taste-tested this marinade recipe with some friends and it they found it very tasty and great for summer cookouts.

I’m ready to kick summer cooking & eating into high gear (it hit 90’s here in NC today), so I’ll have plenty to post about very soon. Always love to hear your feedback!
