Good day. I don’t know what my father did fried chicken every Sunday afternoon when I was little, but that’s how I remember it: the rasher of bacon floating in the splattered oil, the flour all over it, the crispy, golden chicken placed on a rack, then kept warm in the oven before of the dinner. Mashed potatoes go with, dip, vegetables He rarely ate, all washed down with a tall glass of milk and the New Hikers of the Lost City on the record player It was one of my favorite foods growing up.
I bring the memory today because we have published a wonderful collection of 24 recipes, online and in print today, loved by our subscribers’ kids: kid-friendly recipes approved by real kids.
Among other recipes, you will find Home Burger Helper (above), a bibimbap for pans and a baked with tomato and white beans with cheese. I hope you cook a lot of them. Me? I will continue the tradition today and serve the youth as they served me myself.

I love Colu Henry’s recipe for creamy white beans with herb oilpartly because it’s delicious, partly because it comes together easily on weekdays, and partly because I like to drizzle leftover herb oil over fried eggs the next morning.

Now, it has nothing to do with cardamom or cake, but I took an early look at the novel”dream city”, Don Winslow’s sequel to “burning city.” It is the second in a trilogy about Danny Ryan, a tough guy from Rhode Island with an extra-big heart. (The third novel may be Winslow’s Last.) Both are worth reading.
