I have been using this week's evenings to experiment with several recipes from Anna Olson's book, and each one of them so far has been a hit.

This woman is amazing.

Over the years I have watched a number of Anna Olson cooking shows. I find that she always manages to put a delectable spin on classics. This is not the first cookbook by Anna that I have perused, and it is as good (or better) than those.
