The Best Tuna Salad (Mayo-Free)
I love mayonnaise. In elementary school, I dunked soggy fries in piles of the stuff. I'd snatch a handful of those little pasteurized packets at the end of the lunch line and squeeze it out on whatever i pleased later that day. I'm not ashamed (well, maybe ...

Cherry Clafouti
Wondering what to make when guests are expected in half an hour and all you've got is a bag of cherries in the fridge? I, too, found myself in this predicament one beautiful summer evening. My brain flitter back to a post I'd seen on legend Ruth Reichl's bl...

My First Visit to a Jamie Oliver Restaurant
Maison Publique Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Yes, Canada. Let me take a moment to announce my absolute, undying, infinite love for Montreal. The city that I've visited so often as a child with my family but never really explored has been patient with...

Eat grapefruit, that carnal pink fruit that one must rip apart in order to enjoy. Notice each juicy aril popping in your mouth; notice the slight bitterness left on your tongue that makes you appreciate the next sweet bite. ...

Budget Bites: Dressed-up Ramen
I've always loved Ramen noodles (anything but the chicken flavor). As a kid I remember adding a quarter of the water recommended so they would be extra flavorful and noodle-y as opposed to soupy.  As a college student living on a minimal income, Ramen certa...

Snack Time: Ketchup on Salt and Vinegar Chips
Step 1: Rip open a bag of kettle-cooked salt and vinegar chips. My favorite brand is Kettle's 40% reduced-fat because they seem to have more salt and vinegar flavor. Step 2: Acquire good ketchup. I eschew Heinz in favor of Hunt's because Heinz uses high-fru...

Breaking the Fast: Yogurt & Cherries
Breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day; in my opinion, it is definitely the most tasty and satisfying. While I ADORE eggs, bacon, sausage and all of those jazzy breakfast foods, some mornings I wake up with a hankering for lighter fare. Cu...

Ode to Radicchio
Tightly
furled orb of Rosy royal
purple, Your leaves
not only cling to One
another, but they stretch across The entire
diameter Of your
round body, Hugging the
next leaf desperately, With
abandon, Even
slipping under others so as to
make removal difficult. ...

I've been here three times within the past week because I could not get enough of this charming place. I don't think I'll go to half-price books again now that I've discovered this independently-owned gem. It's bigger on the inside (Doctor Who anyone?) and it's just bursting with books of all kinds. There are new books (I've bought several for Christmas presents already), plenty of used books, and a special room for the rare and old books (I found the four volumes of Les Miserables in ancient little hardback copies). The service is awesome; the lovely lady up front always asks me what I'm looking for and helps me dig it out, and last time we had a delightful conversation about the way our perceptions of books evolve as we grow older. The Village Bookshop is filled with character, and I plan on coming here very often. A few other notes: the books are ridiculously cheap, cheaper than half-price books and there are a bunch of comfy armchairs to sit in and delve into a novel. I highly recommend coming here the next time you want to find a good book.
