Cooking, the Graphic Novel

Food Anatomy by Julia RothmanIf a cookbook could be made into a graphic novel, it would look something like Food Anatomy: the Curious Parts & Pieces of our Edible World by Julia Rothman. It's part food encyclopedia, part cooking lessons, and all easy on the eyes. The first thing I learned: the difference between New York, New Jersey, Chicago, St. Louis, and Detroit styles of pizza. My next lesson will be how to make cheese.

Changing Your Life...

What if you changed the way you live now? What would you do? Would the change be drastic - like taking advice from a popularity guide written in the 1950s,  not using a mirror for a year, or adding bugs to your diet? Maybe you would do something less extreme. Ever wonder what would happen if you took the SAT now? What score would you get as an adult?
