so enjoying reading the book and amazed at the stories of how much work (on top of regular work) you and Merrill put into it-- turned out to be a worthwhile investment-- and well deserved nominations.
Amanda H. March 28, 2011
Glad you're enjoying it! Thank you.

so am I going to be able to buy that little gold stamp that goes on the front for the copies I have or am I going to have to go out and buy new copies with the stamp, which I would do gladly. Congratulations to you.
Amanda H. March 25, 2011
Actually, you have to buy a new copy every year. Didn't I tell you this? Just kidding -- I'll ask if they can send me some stamps and I can send them to whoever wants one.
thirschfeld March 25, 2011
well with as many food stains as it is getting I may need to and that should have been followed with a LOL. It was by no means serious.
Sally March 25, 2011
Well deserved!

Hooray Amanda!! Reading your last NYT. Mag I was reminded what a wonderfully gifted writer you are, well deserved! Rock on lady!!!!
Amanda H. March 24, 2011
Thanks, Aliwaks!
Amanda H. March 24, 2011
Thank you so much (from both of us!) for all of your wonderful and generous comments. The book was an exciting challenge to take on and the best part is that Merrill and I became great friends while working on it.

I love this book& use it all the time! I'm especially intrigued by the older recipes, and very much appreciate the historical timelines. The writing before and after most recipes is super fun and also really informational. Probably, I've already made 50 items from in this book and it just came out in Oct. :)
Amanda H. March 24, 2011
Wow! Had no idea you've cooking so much from it!
mariaraynal March 22, 2011
