First, I did the book drawing yesterday, but it was later in the day, and I’m wondering if anyone saw it. Scroll down a smidge to read about “The Ultimate Guide to Making Chili.”

Cioppino from the Chicago Tribune jumped out of the water and into my boat today. I sent it straight to the printer and into my purse for weekend perusal.
I love Cioppino, a true San Francisco treat, but I’ve never attempted it because it’s a huge and expensive hassle. If I could visit a big street market with fishmongers willing to sell me only what I need, and had an afternoon to play around in the kitchen, a couple of friends coming over, making Cioppino would constitute a day well spent …
Excuse me for drifting off there.
My point is, this recipe is built for speed, and cuts the shopping list in half and the preparation down to a more manageable half an hour.
I might not be as great as the one from my sunny California Saturday fantasy, but it’s going to be good enough for a chilly Erie Friday.
