Lessons from Cranky Agnes, #1

Pan Hunting

Do not be seduced by those big-box come-ons, full of "complete sets" of extraneous cookware. A complete set is whatever you need, and maybe all you need is a wok and hat place to grill your bacon. In a pinch, I can do it all with my good heavy nonstick frying pan. Besides the obvious braising, browning and frying, I can make sauces and stir-fries in it, toast cheese sandwiches and slivered almonds, use the underside to pound cutlets, and in a pinch probably swing ti to defend my honor. If I could find a man that versatile and dependable I'd marry him.

from Agnes and the Hitman, by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer

Love to all,
