Isabelle was home for almost a month. All in all, in a 1200 sf apartment, we did okay. And the benefit to having Isabelle around - besides that she is smart, funny, and charming - is that she is an amazing cook. I now put her in the category with the top four cooks I know who are all much older than she. Those cooks would be Carrie, Holly, Anna, and Jacqueline. She has surpassed me as an instinctive cook.
Here is a sampling of Isabelle's ouevre. How lucky are we???? If anyone wants a recipe, let me know...she kind of makes this up, but we can work it out.
