Mae West


Do you ever find yourself in need of a good quote? More often than not, Mae West is my source for amusing bons mots. Her risque sayings are often very apropos for all things culinary:

"I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it" (Dessert anyone?)

"He who hesitates is a damn fool" (Especially at the buffet table)

"Too much of a good thing can be wonderful" (Whipped cream, chocolate, sushi...)

Tomorrow is election day, and while I try to keep this site free of anything political if it's not food related, I would like to share this one thought--if you are still undecided, at the bakery counter or more importantly in the election booth, let this memorable quote guide you--

"Whenever I'm caught between two evils, I take the one I've never tried."

--Mae West
