When I was in first grade my teacher was Mrs. Falk. I was terrified of her. She was strict --- old school kind of Catholic school strict. We would sit in chairs according to "our ability" (at the time ability was what you did work wise). And yeah, I was first row, first seat. She was very intense (a term I use now, but never knew then) about learning and being perfect. Totally stressed me out (a term I use now...then I just said I had a stomach ache). That said, she loved to encourage children to read.
I unwind by cooking. Discovering a new recipe or a new cookbook can be as relaxing for me as a great swim or long bike ride. This weekend I decided to explore Rachael Ray's 30-MINUTE GET REAL MEALS.
