"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to mom from a dear family friend. Speaking of family friends, I'm reminded of Annie Fields. She was a nanny to the Gladwell children for several years, which meant she cared for all our children. She was fiercely protective of Nellie, and we often remember her telling Nellie, "Eat your food. Don't you want to be fat like Annie?"
