Black Lentils

I have met a bunch of really terrific men who cook in the last few years. I've always known a lot of great women cooks, but it's been terrific to find all these wonderful men who cook wonderful things.

They've taught me not only how to cook better, but many new recipes and even more than that, reminded me how satisfying it is to cook and eat at home and enjoy food you often can't find in even the best restaurants.

So today I'm making lamb chops and haricots vert (skinny French green beans) and black lentils for lunch -- just for me -- and ohmygod -- it smells so good and is a perfect winter lunch.
