It's Tasha Tudor Day!

Today is Tasha Tudor's birthday, and some of us are celebrating her life and works. To honor the day, I am showing my two books of hers that I purchased in the early 1990's. I also made macaroni and cheese (receipt in the cookbook) for our supper! We really like mac & cheese, and I hope that we enjoy this receipt (that is how Tasha spelled recipe). It is cooling now, and I've got to fix a veg (probably green beans, my favorite) and warm up the roasted chicken. I'll let you know later how it was!

Note: The mac & cheese was good, but I would make it differently next time. I used soymilk, because that's what I had on hand. Next time I make it, I would use a can of evaporated milk. The soymilk left a "vanilla" taste. Live & learn

knMorning June,

Happy Tasha Tudor Day! I also own those two books and have a couple of her others. U know I've always admired her lifestyle and she is such a unique lady. When C and M were schoolage children, we would try some of the recipes too. I hadn't heard she had passed. She must have been up in years.But she had a WONDERFUL life, for sure. Enjoy! How was the Mac and Cheese?

Hi June! I love Tasha Tudor!.. I was sorry to recently hear the feuding, if that is indeed STILL going on, about her will, and who gets what. I first heard of Tasha through the t.v. specials that aired on PBS. I've LOVED her ever since, for so many various reasons! I have always wanted one of her books. People have asked me what I wanted for Christmas or for birthday, and I had mentioned the Tasha Tudor books, but I guess no one remembered! (0; So it would seem it's up to me to look them up at my local bookstore, and I'll just have to purchase them myself! Hope you're having a nice weekend! ~tina
