I am a groovy housewife who idolizes the likes of Martha Stewart and Julia Childs, but alas, I am far too indolent to actually emulate these fine women. The dark side of this idolatry is that I am now an addict. I have a terrible cookbook addiction…they are all over our apartment…I read them like porn. I also am addicted to housekeeping books…yea, the ones that explain how to dust and organize. These are my housekeeper’s porn books. Did you know Martha has a video on dusting? Ooooooooh. Pour the wine, and let’s watch. Seriously, I am one damn fine cook (so says my husband and anyone who has eaten my food). My housekeeping skills are fine, now. Tho,’ I read these books (and watch these videos) and still just sigh. What I do really well is to edit and translate these arts of home keeping into do-able bits and pieces where the tired, overworked, and just plain lazy can come off like a gourmet cook with a clean bathroom, without raising much of a sweat or chipping her manicure.
