    Anne Lamott…oh, man, I read that book over and over when my first was an infant. I particularly remember the line “I hate him, he’s scum, he’s got to go” and later she talks about feeding a baby is like spackling a wall. She’s so funny.

    Thanks for sharing. The Debra Madison’s cookbook is great. I have made so many wonderful recipes from it.

    I loved Possession (the book) and the movie Room with a View!
