 h1. Dear Readers,

 Mollie Katzen helped teach me to cook years ago when I bought my now-bedraggled copy of Moosewood Cookbook -- and what's more, she continues to teach me. Recently when I spoke with her about her latest book, The Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without, she gave me several pointers for cooking vegetables to enhance their irresistibility. If you, like me, are trying to eat more of these important foods, tune in to Culinate's first podcast, and hear what Mollie has to say. 

 This month of holidays are ringing in merry and bright, but our collective favorite is coming up this weekend: The winter solstice. Here's wishing you and yours reflective and festive days to mark the winter season.

 Editorial Director
