My neighbors Devorah and Motty were not only champion taste testers for this book, but also donated a few of the recipes. One day, when we were walking our daughters in their carriages, Devorah said to me, "You'll never believe the most delicious and easy dinner I made for Motty last night!" I remember exactly what corner we stopped at, as she described this mouth-watering recipe. It's great when people want to share their kitchen secrets with you! I've heard there's a type of cook who won't give out recipes. Thankfully, I haven't run into one yet.
