Even the print version is broken up into 10 recipes per print job. Fuck that shit. If I want that I will go read a hardware review.

I was thinking the same thing, srboisvert. Normally the print link takes care of that for you. Not this time.

Still worth it. Not only are these great and simple ideas, but they stand a chance of getting me out of my same-5-dishes picnic rut.

This is where having the version as it appears on the newsstand is vastly preferable. But I am an unrepentant newspaper reader and adore newsprint on my fingers.

Ah, I'm moving into a new house opposite a park in a few months. This is going to be cool!

I love how so many of these assume that I have things like a cooked chicken or an angel food cake lying around. Oh it's easy, *after* the angel food cake is done. Got it.

You can buy cooked chicken and angel food cake!

Another Bittman article to keep forever and use all the time.
