Oops, Sariette! Sorry about that! The oven temperature should be 400 degrees F.

Please can you help me with the oven temperature for the Classic Sugar Cookies. Thanks you so much. Sariette.

Very well said.


Amanda, I appreciate that there are (at least) two sides to the gun control argument. Personal experience colors my own stance, as it does for most of us. But no matter where anyone stands on the issue, I hope that the Newtown massacre will also highlight an equally important issue - what are we going to do about the way we recognize, handle, and treat the mentally and emotionally ill?

I think it's a complex, complicated issue that we face in this country - and there's no single set of laws that are going to fix everything. But I'm hoping we continue the dialogue and find ways to fix what we can.


Here's an interesting perspective: http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2012/12/20/an-opinion-on-gun-control/. He says it much better than I can. As someone who owns an "assault weapon" (for deer hunting, and because our home is very isolated. If someone unwanted entered our home, there's no one that could see or hear and save me/ call the cops.) What happened in Connecticut was a tragedy, but the killer broke the law to get the guns. More laws wouldn't have stopped him, or anyone else looking to use a gun to commit a crime.


I'm from France, and don't see the point to have a gun at home. So having assault weapons...

I hope very much that people of America, especially women, can raise and say no to the second amendment.


This is such an insightful and beautifully written piece. Whatever the answers, we need to continue the conversation.


Anita, I was gratified to hear a few politicians publicly shifting their views on gun control. I can't remember the last time that's happened. It's not the whole picture and it won't solve the entire issue, but it would be a start!


I couldn't agree with you more. I have written to both of my senators requesting that they introduce laws restricting gun control. I plan to write to my state representatives.
