DEDICATED TO THE LOVED ONES I'VE LOST, THOSE GOOD EATERS, GOOD SOULS, AND ONE GOOD DOG WHO I CAN NO LONGER SIT AT THE TABLE WITH. IN MY DREAMS, WE ARE STILL TOGETHER AND THE TABLE IS AS FULL AS OUR HEARTS.
HUGE HUGS for the BIG help on the BIG ORANGE BOOK (I call him Bob, for short) and many thanks to the team of editors and artists who shape and style my recipes into lovely books, especially Pam Krauss and Amy Boorstein at Clarkson Potter, and Tina Rupp, Andrea Steinberg, and Deborah Williams (plus their assistants Elizabeth Drago, Teresa Horgan, Ivone Moutela, Jessica Gorman, and Alicia Steiling). Thanks also to my support system at all my homes away from home who test-kitchen my recipes and challenge me to make each dish tastier than the next. Thank you to the Food Network, EDWRR Magazine, and
Rachael Ray Show
staffs, especially Emily Rieger and our culinary team of Abigail Bodiker, Kara Vogt, and Patrick Decker. Thanks to my delicious family, including Isaboo, who is such a love and good eater, too. Special thanks to my mom and mother-in-law for the family memories and recipes they contributed to this book. Thanks to Michelle Boxer for her organizational acumen and the laughs! And thanks to my readers and viewers, who keep me employed and ever-hungry to do better.
