I love the idea of a digital detox day! The question is, do I have the guts and discipline to make it work? Hmm...

So very impressed with what you’re doing, Amie and look forward to many future posts on the subject (and maybe a book someday of collected recipes and writing?). Such an excellent idea to collect handwritten recipes from friends’ archives via snail mail. I shall have to dig through my trove in quest of something worth contributing!

Nothing quite compares to holding an actual note in hand. I recently discovered two notes that my great grandmother sent my great aunt in 1915. I look forward to your recipes and insights in 2024.

Tang! I remember it well! And your comment about wanting to be an author at age 8 - somewhere I have my first diary, and in the front inside cover I wrote, β€œI am a writer at age 8!!” I wonder what it was about turning 8 - new awareness of becoming an adult maybe? Your recipe exploration sounds like a wonderful 2024 project.

Love this newsletter!! And the digital detox aspect of cooking, the need to pay attention to real life ingredients and stovetop stuff is one of the things I enjoy most about cooking!!
