Double Blueberry Crumb Muffins



        Have you seen the current crop of blueberries in the markets?  They  are truly enormous and so tantalizing that Andrew couldn’t wait to get home and make a batch of blueberry muffins.   He found an ideal recipe in Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook.   We’ve baked from this book before and since Kathleen King is a Southampton native and we live in neighboring Bridgehampton, we take a certain amount of pride in her recipes.

Skirt Steak with Sweet Corn, Haricots Verts and Pesto



        I don’t know whether you’ve been following the histrionics that have been going on over the re-designed Bon Appetit.  The new editor, Adam Rapoport, has taken over from Barbara Fairchild, who bowed out when Conde Nast moved the magazine from California to New York and she wouldn’t.  Mr Rapoport knows a thing or two about magazines having been at GQ for over ten years.  And he knows a bit about food since he worked as an Editor and Writer for the James Beard Foundation’s publications office before that.  His first issue was dedicated to Italy and didn’t seem to arouse much anxiety.  Next, however, he had the temerity to feature Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover and you’d think he’d knocked over Ruth Reichl with his car.
