Columnist Leah Eskin, an Iowa City native, has written about the roast chicken that was almost spoiled by a trip to the Emergency Room, the first real meal she made after being sidelined by chemotherapy, and the tart she made for her boyfriend (who later became her husband). Eskin has been sharing her life and recipes with readers for 14 years.
This hour, Charity speaks with Eskin, the Pulitzer-prize nominated author of the Chicago Tribune's food column "Home on the Range." Her new book is titled "Slices of Life: A Food Writer Cooks through Many a Conundrum." (Running Press)
