Hi. In other news, I’m happy to share some recent developments with Boychik.

First, book reviewer and foodie lit aficionado Susan Weintrob has included Boychik in her series where she reviews a book and shares a recipe inspired by the story. You can read that article about Boychik on her Expand the Table website.

Susan’s father owned a deli in Brooklyn, and she shares the makings of her favorite pastrami sandwich. She also talks egg creams, an important touchstone in the story. Thank you, Susan!

Also, I’m thrilled to be included on the Sassy Scribblers blog, which is where the title of this post comes from. This is where I talk about my culinary past, including my grandfather, who delighted me in sharing his chicken soup recipe, which always began with “First, you take a nice chicken.”

And please, share the links if you feel so moved. Thank you for reading.
