Love Her

How can you not love a lady who writes a recipe like this:

Start cooking those noodles, first dropping a bouillon cube into the noodle water. Brown the garlic, onion and crumbled beef in the oil. Add the flour, salt, paprika and mushrooms, stir, and let it cook five minutes while you light a cigarette and stare sullenly at the sink.

Also? She called it “Skid Road Stroganoff.” RIP, Peg Bracken. You are totally my deceased BFF of the day.
