I’m thrilled to announce that I’m part of a new project. It’s a new cooking magazine, actually, called Refrigerator Soup.
The first issue, released today, is dedicated to moms, and filled with essays on how the joys and challenges of having children come with us into the kitchen. The stories are heartfelt, sometimes funny, and may feel a bit familiar to you. Future issues will most likely grow, with more recipes. The editor, a colleague I look up to with much respect, wants to hear what you have to say. (On Twitter, she’s @fridgesoup.)
Give it a read. (It’s print on demand: You order it, they send it.) Make dinner. (The recipes are designed with busy folks in mind.) Tell me what you think. (Really. Email me.)
Hope you enjoy it.
