Teen1 still likes to cook and asked for this cookbook for Christmas. It's by two local women, Claudia Pruett and Rima Barkett. They used to have a restaurant downtown where we often ate. The food was always fresh and well prepared and delicious. Sadly the restaurant has been sold and the food is not quite the same. Their focus is now on encouraging family cooking through this website, the cookbook, and charity projects. In fact, one day they came to Teen1's cooking class at high school and gave a demonstration. Wonderful women!So last night Teen1 asked to make dinner and when I picked her up from work she had purchased the ingredients and when we got home she made Penne con Scampi.
I hope this is the first of many happy meals from that book.
