    Fish en papillote is the elegant-sounding name of a staple recipe of classic French cuisine. Translated into English, it becomes the much less elegant-sounding — “fish in a bag.” By any name, however, this method of baking fish is a smash.

    I started by shopping, assuming the only way I could have an industrial-style bookcase was by paying a hefty sum for one.

    LOS ANGELES — “There’s a rhythm to it, the way she works the masa,” Cynthia Gonzalez says quietly. Her mother, Dora, carefully stirs a large pot of masa for tamales over the stove. It’s smooth as custard and lightly fragrant as it begins to bubble.

    Chocolate often becomes one of those indulgences we curtail when making New Year’s resolutions. One last time, before the demon discipline takes over, indulge a bit with one of these chocolate delights. In her book, “Bake and Freeze Chocolate Desserts,” author Elinor Klivans shares 120 recipes that can be made and frozen for later use, such as midnight cravings, last-minute parties, or gift-giving. You can have a little bit now and freeze the rest so you aren’t tempted to eat the whole thing. To ensure the defrosted dessert tastes as good as when it was made, follow these simple guidelines: cool or chill desserts thoroughly before wrapping and freezing, and put desserts in the coldest part of your freezer — usually the bottom rear shelf — to freeze. If it still calls out to you in the middle of the night, three weeks into your new diet plan, it’s not my fault. Blame Elinor.
