Only braising can get you through the winter alive. But what to braise? Matthew says meat. Molly says vegetables. If this strikes you as stereotypical, however, check out Matthew’s gender-bending headgear.
I’m so glad you guys did a show on braising! I love braising, because it’s hard to botch, so it is my go-to cooking method when I’m in the mood to “improvise” (i.e. clean out the cupboards). Example: a few nights ago, I noticed a funky smell coming from the pantry – after throwing out one slimy golden beet, I cut up the surviving beets, plus a soft, neglected apple, a sprouting sweet potato (sprouts removed), and some onion and arranged it around a pork loin with some apple juice, white wine, dried sage and a little (don’t judge me) pumpkin pie spice. Braised up fabulously.
Keep up the good work, this podcast is delightful! Sometimes you recommend cookbooks, it would be great if you instituted a “featured cookbook” or foodie book for each show. I actually had not heard of the Molly Stevens book, and it is now queued up next on my Amazon splurge list.
I like all your episodes. They are very funny.
Woohoo! Molly, you are coming to the Booksmith? I look forward to meeting you and getting my book signed!
Anna, I’m coming to Brookline Booksmith, yep! April 5 at 7:00 pm. I’ll see you there!
I absolutely love this show and I’m 52 years old. So I guess you guys have a wide appeal. Molly, I am addicted to your oatmeal pancakes. Ever since I found the recipe I’ve had them every day for lunch. Yum! Keep up the great work.
So I just noticed that my iTunes is telling me that Spilled Milk is not a valid podcast URL? This is a tragedy of the highest order! I live in a dorm, I’m never at my parents’, and my boyfriend’s kitchen kind of sucks, so I use your podcast to cook vicariously. Come back!
Hey, Eleanor, we haven’t gone anywhere. I just tried it in my iTunes and it worked fine; try deleting Spilled Milk from your list of podcasts and resubscribing from the iTunes store. Hopefully that will fix it!
Thanks so much, Susan!
