The Inspiration

When I started brainstorming recipes for my site two years ago, one of the first half-ideas I had was a Fiona Apple-inspired dish involving with tart apples. Her latest album, The Idler Wheel is Wiser than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More than Ropes Will Ever Do (whew!) ends with the jazzy vocal acrobatics of "Hot Knife". One of my favorite tracks, it's driven by the line, "If I'm butter, if I'm butter/ If I'm butter then he's a hot knife."

Check out the full post for even more behind the recipe, and a taste of Fiona's latest.
