You may have known syndicated columnist Molly Ivins as an unabashed civil libertarian and vocal critic of the Bush administrations wars. But did you also know that Molly was one helluva cook?
In Stirring It Up with Molly Ivins, Molly’s longtime friend, fellow reporter, and frequent sous-chef Ellen Sweets takes us into the kitchen with Molly and introduces us to the private woman behind the public figure. She serves up her own and others’ favorite stories about Ivins as she recalls the fabulous meals they shared, complete with recipes for thirty-five of Molly’s signature dishes. These stories reveal a woman who was even more fascinating and complex than the “professional Texan” she enjoyed playing in public.
