My favorite thing I ever got to eat out of my college cafeteria was cornbread. I couldn’t get enough of it. My second favorite, which was available with much greater regularity, were the omelets. They were cooked to order, right in front of you, and it was the perfect balm to soothe the sting of an 8am French class during my first year at UVA. Since that time I’ve fallen in love with many delicious egg dishes, including quiche (good quiche, not weird scary quiche) and frittatas. Earlier this year I added the Spanish tortilla to the list. While at the Atlanta Food and Wine Festival earlier this year, I attended a session called Pantry Punch and Emergency Bites. The

Finally. It is actually, officially autumn. What’s even better is that it’s starting to feel like autumn in Atlanta.

While I don’t have anything quite as momentous as the start of school coming up, I am a big fan of Autumn. Given that I like Fall so much, it’s pretty great that I live in Georgia where Fall pretty much lasts until (and sometimes through) December. It’s the season of hiking, sweatshirts, everything pumpkin all the time, Halloween, Thanksgiving, soup, apple pie,

I grew up surrounded by books. I was part of a family of voracious readers and books lived in stacks on available surfaces everywhere in the house. While I almost never got toys during outings to stores, I could pretty much always count on my parents shelling out for books and I tore through them. Hey, I was shy and books were a wonderful escape from the problems of my adolescent world. As an adult, they are great for avoiding talking to those with whom you’d rather not engage. It’s like the international sign of “leave me alone.” And if someone feels the need to interrupt you, you can then glare at him or her and be perfectly justified about
