In 1949 Evelyn Birkby began writing a weekly column for the Shenandoah Evening Sentinel, her editor told her to include a recipe every single week -- and she did -- even though she couldn’t cook. Host Charity Nebbe, talks with Evelyn Birkby and her new book, a collection of her columns, is called “Always Put in a Recipe.”
