Food52 Cookbook Volume 2

Food52 Cookbook Volume 2

I feel just terrible that I haven’t posted anything for a while. First work became so busy I was just too tired and barely cooked at all. Then the heat, well, it was just way too hot to cook. I stayed away from my kitchen only making food for my dogs and something that required little to no heat for me. Summers in NYC can be brutal, I don’t have central AC and live in a 100+ year old home with very high ceilings, my window air conditioners barely cool it off. So the kitchen for me was almost off limits. During the last heat wave, notice I say last, we have already had 4 and summer just started a month ago, my Nando got sick and I ended up in the Veterinary Emergency Hospital. Last Friday when I was taking Nando for a follow up appointment I started to lift him and felt a searing and horrific pain in my back and literally could not move, I got him to the hospital with help from my neighbor but have spent the last few days almost immobile. I am feeling better now, after days of pain meds, muscle relaxants and bed rest, so this is my feeble attempt to catch up.

I am so excited that in November the second Food52 cookbook will be available. My recipe for Flank Steak on Texas Toast with Chimichurri will be in the book and I can’t wait to get my copy. The book is available for pre-order on Amazon. I love the first cookbook and use it all the time. Food52 is such a great resource, I have made so many friends, home cooks and professionals alike post recipes, enter contests and offer advice.

I hope to be able to post some recipes but it looks like we are in for another heat wave and as far as I can see we will be having hot, humid weather for the coming week,  so my time in the kitchen again will be limited, I think I’ll make ice cream!

  4. Congratulations on having one of your recipes included in Vol 2. I will buy the volume just because you are in it. The index better be improved from the previous one which I believe was just short of really bad. I hope you are feeling better Suzanne. My heart goes out to Cynthia and her friends on the bison ranch who are being confronted with fires as I type. We do live in troubled times.

    • Thank you so much, I hope also they have worked out the kinks with the 2nd book. I know I feel just terrible for Cynthia and the wonderful people on the bison ranch and everyone impacted.
