A frittata (stop me if I'm teaching you how to suck eggs) is the Italian version of the tortilla, or Spanish omelette. Unlike a light, fluffy French omelette, it's designed to cook as a single thick cake which you cut into wedges. It makes a very good supper or lunch and an easily portable picnic dish.

A Judge has recently ruled in the case of Tracey Wright that she should go out and get herself a job rather than rely on her ex-husband to provide maintenance for her to live on.

I'd tried a Simit or two before, they taste a lot like a bagel in that they have a dense crumb and I find them very filling but these have a distinct sweetness that you won't find in a plain bagel. A recent trip to Istanbul had me thinking about making them back home.

I'll let you in on a secret I LOVE being a dad, it is the single greatest thing in my life.

I don't remember much about the classes except I have hazy memories of very graphic birth flash cards, featuring very ugly, hairy-vagina'd mothers-to-be, often with baby heads crowning out of them. It was the stuff of nightmares.
