Catbatty from Portland, Ore

I'm cheating. I just bought the book...could NOT resist.
Haven't made a thing from it.
Got it from library first, but such a long waiting list for it, couldn't keep I went to Amazon and did something I don't normally do: bought expensive...$30. (I seldom go above $20 and even THAT very rarely).
This book is HUGE and MORE HUGE.
One recipe that stands out for me to make is my own beef broth and HERE IS WHY: NOT BONES! Instead, FLANK STEAK.
I'm squeemish about meat anyway and the idea of buying a big bag of misc cow bones (as most recipes call for--for beef broth) really sounds unappetizing. Instead, this author's recipe for beef broth, using just a cut of beef (no ribs/no bones), looks YUMMY to me. I can't wait to make some of the recipes in this book!
