Making Dallas Even Better

Cookbook Author Sheila Lukins, R.I.P.

TG just informed me that popular author Sheila Lukins passed away yesterday. She was 66. The  Silver Palate Cookbook written by Lukins and Julee Rosso in 1982 is a classic. I suggest we all pick one recipe and cook it in her honor. I love this one.

    I think “The New Basics Cookbook” was the first cookbook that I poured over for weeks and weeks. My first reference cookbook, if you will. Definately impacted/influenced my cooking style.

    Nothing beats the Chicken Marbella. Nothing!

    TLS, never got around to trying the Chicken Marbella

    The brownies were always so easy, lotta return for the minimal investment of time and energy

    Sheila’s was one of the best classes at Central Market cooking school– she was so much fun and great recipes.

    I was at the CM classes as well. She was so inspiring. Chicken Marbella changed my life.

    Oh, dear. What a sweet lady. Her “Around the World” cookbook was one of my very first faves.
