"A recipe adapted from Womens Day includes "Some of my favorite things: " Shrimp and chorizo with almonds for garnish They are so yummy that they'll quickly vanish. Little tomatoes and cucumbers, too These the the tastes that I offer to you! When the pepper bites When the vinegar stings When I'm feeling blue I simply remember my favorite things and then I start cooking for you!"
