For the past four or five years, I've been harassing my parents, brother, uncle, in-laws, and close friends with "look-what-I made-for-dinner-last-night" emails. I have a formula. First, I tell them how delicious it was. I mention all of the fabulous yummy noises my devoted (totally unbiased) husband makes during the meal. Then, I include the link for the recipe, followed by my adaptations, substitutions, or total bastardizations. I often include a crudely taken cell-phone snapshot, and conclude with "YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS".
I'm fairly certain no one reads those emails.
Given my current success rate, I decided I'm well on the way to a career as a food writer. Welcome to my table, I hope you enjoy the meals!
