In appreciation of Nora Ephron, who, well before she became known for writing and directing quintessential chick flicks like When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle, was one of the first authors to weave recipes into a novel. Her semi-autobiographical Heartburn uses recipes to reflect the thoughts of her main character, a food writer, who at one point is in search of the best mashed potatoes. (No wonder she also took on Julie & Julia.)
Time to whip up her key lime pie, which plays a key role in the climatic scene of marital discord.
