Hey Americans remember we ALL get to voice our opinion that’s what makes the USA so great but I think we should all dial back the anger and attitude we seem to have toward each other. We ALL have the right to fight for what WE believe in but do it with respect and love for each other anger only closes down the minds and hearts of those who you want to hear your words. Let’s continue to talk to each other respectfully and what could be better than over food it’s the one thing we can agree that we ALL need.

I love everything Phyllis Grant writes. And I love every recipe she has ever posted. This was a magnificent read. The only downside: I didn’t want it to end.

She has an interesting writing style. I’m okay with whatever she has to express but because of Lynn’s recipe comment I’m especially interested. So how many recipes are included in the memoir?

I love Food 52. I don't love recommendations for books about food that end with an abortion and oh, here's my recipe for tomato sauce with anchovies. Not everyone has a casual attitude towards abortion and I am extremely disappointed that Food 52 would recommend a book that has this kind of content.

Hi—I found Phyllis sharing her experience to be incredibly brave in an environment in which many women don't feel safe talking about their choices for their own bodies. But like you said, this is a personal recommendation from me—one that I fully stand by, and that you can take or leave. We have a lot of other content on our site that I hope you keep enjoying.

Colletepburgess if you don't approve of abortions don't have one. But you do not have the right to tell other people what not to write about because it offends your sensibilities.

I agree. It is a personal choice. My complaint is that I read this book on the recommendation of Food 52, a food blog. Discussions about abortion or other personal and political topics should not have a place on Food 52. There are other appropriate forums for this.

It seems very closed minded of you to not even want to read about the reasoning behind someone's decision to have an abortion. You can disapprove but you really should have an understanding regarding the decisions people make before condemning them outright. And no one forced you to read this article, nor the book. The world does not need to conform to your views. It does not revolve around you. The book is about food and also has some personal decisions in it. You gotta get over yourself.

I immediately added this to my Wish List - her pasta with corn, roasted tomatoes and confit garlic is one of my very favourite recipes EVER. Can't wait!
