Please note the addition of "Protocols" to the list of blogs. It's like the barley in the vast cholent sea of Jewish bloggers...it holds us all together and somehow makes us seem more substantial.
And what do I add to this cholent? I like to think that I'm the bourbon (and not just because it's my alcohol of choice): You might not think of adding bourbon, unless you happen to be Velvel. In fact, you might think it's a horrible idea. Yet, once it's there, you realize that it adds a spicy, sweet and sometimes slightly nutty flavor all its own.
