The three of us wanted to give you something nice. Unfortunately, all I have is this picture.

But mainly, we wanted to say thank you. You’ve given us so much. This year was a big one, and we couldn’t have done any of it - no book, no restaurant, nothing - without you. Thank you for being here, for being there, for every kindness. Thank you for giving us so many reasons to celebrate.

See you in 2010.

Auguri Auguri on the book and the restaurant. I have enjoyed reading about the restaurant and I am inspired to open a wood burning pizzeria myself in Los Angeles. It's a dream I have always had, but I keep putting it on the back burner for oh so many reasons. Hopefully this is the year.

Buona fortuna in 2010.

I was at work the other day (a certain gourmet cooking supply store that will remain unmentioned in case of any would-be litigators looking for easy fodder) and a customer asked for something popcorn related. Pointing her towards the popcorn section (yes, this exists at the aforementioned anonymous store) I mentioned the fantastic batch of caramel popcorn I had concocted the night before from this wonderful blog called Orangette. A wry smile crept to her lips as she knowingly nodded that she too was attempting to recreate that very same recipe. We talked further and I warned her not to omit the 20 minute stirring while in the oven as I had done. Suffice it to say, you are connecting people and inspiring culinary wonders. I can't thank the two of you enough for braving what so many of us are too timid to try. May all your years be as successful and enchanted as this last. Thank you.

In short, you've helped me find a big part of myself, so thank you.
Can't tell you how many of your recipes made it onto our Christmas rotation. As a college student, I think my family expected me to make ramen, but when the orange nutmeg muffins came out, they hushed right up.

I literally just finished your book. It has been on my 'to read' list and finally fell into my hands via a generous christmas gift card. I read the first 66 pages in two sittings; busy with the holidays and all. Then, tonight, I sat down and devoured the rest. There is so much to love about it. You must be so proud to have your name on the pages of it. Also born in 1978, I related to what you wrote on so many levels. I've never been to Paris, but I love my father something feirce and regularly set out to win hearts and minds with food. I've finished reading the book, but that end brings with it an exciting beginning...on to trying new recipes...

I've got a post on my site that might interest you: 'Ten tips for better pizza' on Woodfiredkitchen.com. I'd certainly welcome comments or criticism.
Cheers from rainy Seattle!

Your book just came in the mail today I opened it read the inside of the flaps and I just can't wait to read inside this delightful book!!

Molly -- your book sang to me. I know how silly that sounds, but your words danced off the page and came to life. The best part of having a book you truly love is when there is a continuation of any kind (except for a crap movie that butchers the story.) In your case, I can celebrate the chapters and characters involved through your great recipes. I've very much enjoyed doing just that.
Thank you. For sharing your stories and heart. For being courageous and letting us all learn from you. For telling us about your dad. My life is richer for it.

What a lovely photograph!

I have followed your blog for at least a few years now, and can't get enough of your writing.

Last summer I read your book, could not put it down, and right away made your wedding cake. By now I have it memorized and I can't count how many times I have baked it. It thinks its a little, very rich, slice of genius.

I just posted a photo on my blog of your book sitting on my lap and for some reason its one of my favorite photos from this past year.

Not to sound crazy or anything. Just thought I should say congratulations on such a successful year! I look forward to reading more of your adventures.

Happy happy happy to you too! I just wanted to share that I've made your roasted chicken no less than 4 times since i first tried it...in November. I love it and have taken to roasting one in the beginning of the week and eating the leftovers for days! My favorite thing to do with them is make an awesome salad of sliced fennel and radishes with sharp cheddar cheese, dried cranberries, shredded roasted chicken tossed in a mustard viniagrette. It really brightens my mundane office days! So thank you.

Three quarters through your book, and I have two comments. One, I read alot of recipe-laden memoirs, and I cannot recall any with so high a "I must make this!" response ratio as yours. Two, on the back, a reviewer wrote "Echoes of M.F.K. Fisher." I disagree. I found Ms. Fisher to be more formal, a stiffer, less accessible, more intimidating author than Molly W. Molly W. reminds me of the late amazing Laura Colwin, who's books "Home Cooking" and "More Home Cooking" are two I HAD to have in hardback, and reread and loan on a regular basis. So if you need a read, Molly W., check those out. Love your book, can't wait to cook!

Hi Molly. Just wanted to tell you that I've really been enjoying A Homemade Life. I put up a little blog post about your book & blog tonight to share with my readers... I know they would absolutely love it, too! {Although I'm sure many of them know about it already.} Hope you've had a great start to the new year. Best wishes...

I am not in the habit of doing this, but I just could not let this past. I got your book at New Year...LOVE IT LOVE LOVE IT.

Thank you for the inspiration. Good to hear the positiveness of life around the kitchen table, most people think I am mad, it all goes on in my kitchen.

Thank you

Wishing you another super Year.

Hi Molly, I was directed to your blog from Soulemama's blog- for the Pepperment Bark recipe. Haven't made it yet, but was inspired by that one blogday to buy your book. I tried really hard to make it last, but, I devoured it! Haven't made a single recipe, but love your writing- which is as delicious as I am sure the recipes are. I'll be dropping by to catch up on all that I've missed. I hope your New Year is AMAZING!

Hi Molly and happy New Year. I just started reading your blog a few months ago and its been great. My husband and I visited delancey and absolutely loved it. I brought your book for myself this holiday season and so far so good. I myself am not very adventurous in the kitchen, but tonight I felt like trying this banana bread you raved about. I just took it out of the oven and sampled it, Oh my God it is delicious! It came out perfect and delicious. Thank you for passing along what will now become our staple banana bread recipe in our household. Can't wait to try Berg's potato salad. Cheers. Brenda :)

Watch out dear lady. I just discovered you through Soulemama and that fantastic cakes lady at your restaurant through your blog, that although Europe seems so far, far away, I might get round there sooner that retirement age.

Point is I keep hoping my american little cousin really gets married next year, so we can pop by after the big Chicago Polish-Danish wedding for a bit of relating with family and friends of the Polish-Dutch-Italian sort between Seattle and Vancouver, and of course, although my 5 ys. old boy keeps asking if and when we ever will go t America, I know my little Italian boys and sooner or later they ask for pizza.

And I just happen to know a nice pizza place in Seattle, do you too?

So I guess I have all the time to do my research and rea your book before leaving Europe, sometime next year.

I just need to say that I ate your cabbage braised in cream... for DESSERT last night!!! I am an infrequent cook, but love Orangette, cookbooks, and memoirs. Asked for your book for Christmas, received it, finished it 2 days later, and have made the cabbage (pgs.186-87) twice already. The bad news is that my husband likes it as much as I do!!! btw... just as good with 1/2 cup cream. Just sayin'--- every calorie/point counts to a WW gal!!

Reading this post reminds me -- I want to buy your book! I am just about finished with Bob Spitz' "The Saucier's Apprentice," and need another book to get started on immediately following.
Of course, I've wanted to get your book since I first read about it months ago, but it wasn't til reading your latest post that I was reminded of that fact -- and just in the nick of time, too, when I am just about out of savory foodie reading!

I'm so sorry to contact you this way, but, I've been reading your blog for two years now, and actually have occasion to visit Seattle for a few days, and would LOVE to come to Delancy for dinner. Ordinarily, this would not be an issue, but, I come with an allergy to tomatoes... I've read in your sample menu, that you have some alternatives, yet, as it is a sample menu, and I'd like to make reservations, shall I just call and see? I didn't want to trouble anyone at a busy time, so thought that this could be the best way to go about it... sorry if it's an inconvenience.

Anonymous, re: tomato allergies, no problem! None of our current starters - we have four or five - has tomatoes right now, and we can easily do a pizza for you with no tomato sauce. Not to worry! We'd love to have you.
