‘Holly’s Spaghetti Sauce.” “Julie’s Salmon Canapés.” Over the years, I’ve amassed a file of handwritten recipes titled after various friends who first served me various delicious things. But when I was thumbing through the file recently and came upon a card on which I’d copied down a recipe with the heading “Hillary’s Cookies,” I was puzzled. I couldn’t remember ever having had a friend or colleague with that name. Hillary who?
Then suddenly it came back to me: Hillary Rodham Clinton, that’s who.
