"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Last summer my wife and I vacationed at a friends home in the Mountains of western North Carolina, outside of the town of Brevard. Every Morning, I would travel through the Blue Ridge Mountains into town to pick up some fresh muffins from the local bakery. My wife wanted the blueberry or the lemon poppy, but I had stumbled upon the most amazing muffins I have ever had. Now I am not a huge fan of muffins, generally speaking, however these muffins were so sweet and so tasty; I had to almost beg the baker for his recipe. Although I promised never to share this recipe with anyone, I will never see that guy again, so screw him.
