Dear Happelsauce

People who love to eat are always the best people.

The Fam

Julia Child said that. And I happen to agree with her.


You love to eat. Right? I mean, you’re here, reading Happelsauce. I think it’s fair to make such an assumption. That means that YOU, dearest reader, are the best. I’ve always known it! You mean the world to me. You really do.

The truth is that without you, I may as well write each post on a scroll, pop it in a bottle and toss it out to sea. My words would bob up and down in the ocean waves, get caught in some strong Northern Pacific current and end up in the hands of a Korean container ship captain who would use the scroll to feed the pot-bellied stove that keeps his tea kettle at a constant simmer.

But, YOU read Happelsauce! How lucky I am to have you. So, now I’m going to fill you in on a little project I have in mind. It absolutely won’t work without you…

Dear Happelsauce.

Here’s how it will work. You email me a question…or seven, preferably questions I have a semi-decent answer for. Then, I do my very best to answer them. You can ask me anything, although it’s probably a good idea to stick with Happelsauce-centric questions. For example: My boyfriend’s parents are coming over for dinner on a weeknight. I won’t have much time to cook, but the meal needs to seem impressive. What should I make? 

You can submit your questions anonymously or you can let me know who you are. You can make them thoughtful, funny, heartfelt, curious, or confused. Then, instead of typing out your “answers,” I will reply via video post right here on Happelsauce. That way, there’s potential for show and tell. Like, if you ask me a question about how to make a mean Manhattan, I will show you. I have the supplies.

Okay, now it’s your turn! Email your questions to dearhappelsauceATgmailDOTcom. Don’t hold back. Remember, you’re the best.

Didn’t someone once say, “There are no bad questions, only bad answers”? So, the burden falls on me here. It’s fine. I can handle it.
