You can tell by the way he is looking after his grandmother and nieces (bro, uncle and father in background) that this young graduate (on graduation day) knows how to take care of the business of others. And so it goes, as with so many of his 2009 grad-ilk that the job hunt is actually a bear hunt! After a couple freelance gigs, a possibly unfortunate (for him) move back to the home front with the rents, it turns out his challenge is my good fortune as he’s agreed to travel the country with me on the book tour. Our first few stops were work but also fun and laugh-filled, included a few frustrations which afforded me some humble pie. At a reading, he handed out taste treats and reminded me to call out page numbers (for those who had books in hand) as I discussed the corresponding recipes (amongst other things). And, after last night asked me if I wanted his “notes” re my “act” which proved to be right on the money. Hopefully I’ll not drive him nuts but continue to reap the utter pleasure of hanging with my young adult son before he truly heads out on his own.

    It's comforting to see I'm not the only one with an unemployed 2009 grad living back home. Was really hoping to attend the signing today at Wegman's but I need to feed my contingent of men before their various activities. Hope to catch you on your next visit to NJ

    I saw you on Martha today and loved the segment. I'm surprised you don't get more comments here! I would really love to get your book–maybe I can make it to one of your book signings in Minnesota next week. I'm an hour north of the Twin Cities. Great looking food, made me hungry! Cute sons, too…;-) I will soon be feeding a teenager as my son is 12.

    I saw you on Martha today too and I think you ought to pack some rubber hoses to take on your trip – you're going to need them to beat the girls away from that handsome son of yours! How nice that's he's on tour with you. I'm ordering your book – can't wait to get it.
