Gluttonforlife is a writer by trade and it shows in her clever, elegantly written recipes (standouts include the witty Jimmy "Crack" Corn and Rice Aloni). From her cottage in upstate New York, she cooks foods that are equal parts healthful and indulgent, like her Lima Bean and Ham Stew with Pistou (which draws lots of meaty flavor from a single ham hock) and her Spicy Shorties ("a hippie cookie, but still rich with butter," as she enticingly puts it).

Ditto what everyone is saying. What a wonderful blog you've created! It really speaks from your heart to ours. Just wonderful - from the pictures to the writing to the name of the blog. Congrats on being recognized by A & M. And now by the rest of us.

Is it wrong that every time I read "Rice Aloni" I sing it to the tune of the famous jingle? :) Congrats on the shout-out, and I look forward to checking out your blog!

Where are you in upstate NY and, like Amanda, I too love your sunglasses! They suit you well!

I am in Eldred, a tiny non-town in Sullivan County. Are you nearby??

No, but I have a place in the Adirondacks and was wondering if you were near there. Now that I know where you are, I still have a connection. I know exactly where Eldred is! Amanda and I grew up relatively close to where you are - we lived just across the state line, a little bit west of Milford, PA in a "town" called Lords Valley.

Of course I've been to Milford (a bastion of civilization up here). Consider yourself invited for lunch next time you're in the area!

I like your recipes, AND your sunglasses.

That's praise from on high! (However, all credit for the sunglasses must go to Tom Ford...)
