Banking on Bittman

This past Christmas, I gave Geoff How to Cook Everything by Mark Bittman. Geoff likes to cook (sort of) and wants to take over some of the cooking in 2008 - at least that's what he told me. So, I bought him How to Cook Everything (or, maybe I really bought it for myself and disguised it as a gift for Geoff) hoping that Bittman could turn Geoff into a chef of sorts. So far, it seems to be working. This weekend, Geoff used the book to plan menus and even made a white bean soup with ham hocks. And I made savoy cabbage and apples and brown rice with lentils and dried apricots. Yum!

You are my food muse. I bought Deborah Madison's Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone this weekend and can't wait to try the lentil croquettes you mentioned in past posts. Now I might have to get Bittman's book too, or would you just send me the recipe for brown rice with lentils and dried apricots? Sounds great.
