Every time I make this recipe, I think of Meme Marie, my maternal grandmother. To her, I owe my love of the earth, and of a life, led simply, without too much fuss. Meme Marie was zen, without knowing. As I venture further and further into the Buddha realm, I am taking her spirit with me. Practical, womanly, real, humble, . . . feet firmly planted on the ground.
