One of the very best things I got out of working at the Test Kitchen was learning the basics of how to cook. This has profoundly changed my life – I cook most nights I don’t travel, I’m able to walk into a grocery store and invent based on what’s fresh, and I love, love, love cooking for friends and family.
I travel a ton, so this sort of daily consistency is really important in my life. It helps keep me connected to local Boston news even when I’m far away. And my NPR One morning starts the same way every day, no matter what timezone I’m in.
There was what felt like unlimited terrain – you would hop off a lift and could ski pretty much everything in sight. And, we had four full ski days to experience it all… except that at the end of the 3rd day, this happened.
