When I was newly married and commuting from Connecticut to New York City each week day, I would pass the time riding Metro North by reading Bon Appetit and Gourmet magazines. I would pour over the recipes, envisioning the cooking process and the finished product. I would nearly drool on the scrumptious photographs. And I vowed that I would make at least one recipe each month. Two years later, when we moved into the city and the plethora of specialty food shops was but a subway ride away, I began to expand my culinary interests. Martha Stewart was my hero. I loved preparing and eating gourmet food.
