Awarding Hollywood haters
It’s the time of the year for sharing readers’ recipes. Apparently, there’s a lot of cooking taking place, judging from the recipes sent into the NE Times food column. The following recipes are some of the submissions not randomly drawn in the ongoing gift card contest. So many of the submitted recipes really are winners, culinarily speaking, and I plan to share them with you in future columns. If you entered a recipe, it could be published, so please check back.
