Last Night's Dinner tells the story of what one couple—blogger Jennifer Hess and her cocktail-obsessed husband, Mike—ate for dinner. Hess (aka LastNightsDinner) contributes regularly to our weekly contests (and has snagged two wins for her Smoky Pork Burgers with Fennel and Red Cabbage Slaw and Beef Chopped Salad), but keeps her own blog virtually recipe free, saying: "My belief is that cooking is not a science—it’s a craft." Instead, she cooks from memory or to experiment or to tweak a favorite dish and encourages her readers to do the same—to be fearless and unafraid in the kitchen. She documents her work with photographs, beautifully stark images of the meals she’s thrown together, such as this perfect-looking plate of spaghetti and meatballs in a rich tomato sauce. Her writing is casual and smart, much like her food. If this is what letting go looks like, count us in.
