When we were very young, an aunt took Rosemary, Betty and me to lunch there at a restaurant that had a tiny ice rink in the center. I ate a club sandwich while two skaters did a routine for all of us, complete with spins and stops that sprayed ice on those closest to the rink. Fantastic.
...Nina looked up at the soaring ceiling for a long moment. Then she said, "You know, when a unique place like this is built, it's necessary to keep it as it was, not change it. It tells such a great story of optimism and expectations. You can learn all you need to know about Cincinnati and some of its great days just by sitting here."
The Piano Man's Primo Pasta & Pizza Sauce
Cut tomatoes into quarters and saute slowly in olive oil and butter. Add sweet Italian sausage, oregeno, cumin, fresh garlic, black olives, red pepper flakes, onion powder, lots of fennel seed, romano grated cheese, salt, pepper, kitchen bouquet, red wine, vinegar, raw sugar, red and green bell peppers diced and tabasco. Simmer for 4 hours over very low heat [stirring frequently to prevent burning]. Seal in ball jars and freeze. Improves any pasta or can be used as pizza sauce with homemade crust or baguettes. Serve with Bardolino wine. Frozen this sauce will keep a year.
Sandye-that sauce is from my youth 1965--Michigan city Indiana-created by the Martorano family and yes the taste of the fennel is the true kick---------of course I leave the measure for each spice to each chef personal taste.

Before takeoff, Karr took a glass of champagne from a flight attendant and clinked glasses with [an investigator with the Boulder District Attorney's office], who sipped orange juice.
Dinner on board, served on a starched white tablecloth, was one many passengers would envy. Karr started with a pate, then had a green salad with walnut dressing. The main course was fried king prawn with steamed rice and broccoli. Karr drank a beer, crushing the can with his hands when it was empty, then moved on to a glass of French chardonnay with his main course.
[He] will teach bumbling Homer Simpson how to cook in the episode, but producers have yet to confirm whether the foul-mouthed chef will keep his expletive-laden vocabulary on the family show.
Ramsay says, "I was really honored. I don't know how they're going to do it, but I hope they keep the swearing in."
I'm calling for an investigation of Kobayashi, starting with an X-ray and possibly including an MRI. I'm betting that somewhere in the region of his solar plexus, the scans will reveal a contained singularity, a harnessed black hole, of the type most famously used by Romulan battle cruisers in "Star Trek." The dogs go in ... and materialize in another universe, where the inhabitants have no doubt by this time built an elaborate shrine to the Tubular Meat God.
The backlist can also drive business acquisitions. Simon & Schuster bought McMillan in 1994 partly for its backlist, which included "The Joy of Cooking." The cookbook's heavily updated 1997 edition has sold 1.7 million copies. (Several earlier editions also remain in print.)
"Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all." -- Harriet Van Horne
