I have a recipe in this book! Talk about a FANTABULOUS birthday present!

I have yet to own a copy of the hefty 880-page read written by former New York Times food columnist Molly O’Neill, but as I’ve just found out tonight, my Milk Chocolate and Marshmallow Cornflake Cookie recipe made it on page 756! Here’s a snippet from the Simon & Schuster website, describing the book and its author:

“Meticulously selected from more than 20,000 contributions, the cookbook’s 600 recipes are a definitive portrait of what we eat and why. In this lavish volumeโ€”illustrated throughout with historic photographs, folk art, vintage advertisements, and family snapshotsโ€”O’Neill celebrates heirloom recipes like the Doughty family’s old-fashioned black duck and dumplings that originated on a long-vanished island off Virginia’s Eastern Shore, the Pueblo tamales that Norma Naranjo makes in her horno in New Mexico, as well as modern riffs such as a Boston teenager’s recipe for asparagus soup scented with nigella seeds and truffle oil.”

You’ll find the full article here. And, my friend, Bianca Garciaโ€”whose Pork and Chicken Adobo recipe is on page 502โ€”blogged about One Big Table at Confessionsofachocoholic.com.

Will post my feature and recipe once I have a copy of the book!
