Even so, sometimes going against our better judgment turns out to have been pretty good judgment after all. In this week's Food for Thought we offer our personal examples.

The way we roll for Thanksgiving

I claim that the number one job of a Thanksgiving roll is to soak up gravy. "And butter," Nancy Leson added. Here are our two favorite roll recipes. Both have the virtue of being started the night before, giving already harried TG cooks a head start on Turkey Day.

Food for Thought: Adjust your KitchenAid with one thin dime

It was the Big Uh-Oh. An inch of lemon poppy seed sludge was left in the bottom of the KitchenAid mixer bowl when I poured out my cake batter. Could the gap between the bottom of the paddle and the bottom of the bowl be out of adjustment? It was easy to find out and all it took was one thin dime.

Food for Thought: Talking to strangers about food

Just back from Philly , Nancy Leson says that easterners are more likely to chat up people they don't know, especially in restaurants and in supermarkets. "Strangers just come up to you and talk. Or I come up to strangers and talk. About anything. About what you're ordering, how to make it." Nance says this happens all the time back east but not so much in Seattle. Does she think this is the much bemoaned Seattle Freeze?
