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).
