Expect the Unexpected

All the news that's fit to print, debate, and chew on


PJ_BlogPhotoHi everyone and welcome. I’m Patricia Gay, an award-winning journalist in the greater New York City area, Assistant Editor of The Wilton Bulletin with Hearst Connecticut Media.

I’m interested in too many things for my own good. Broadway shows, pop culture and trivia, ephemeral art, raspberry Lambics, Amarena cherries, hopping a plane to Paris, growing wineberries, good films and cooking. (Finalist in the Best Grilled Cheese in New York City contest.)

My idol is Julia Child. We share the same birthday. With her zest for life, Julia instilled in me the passion to do what I want to do, regardless of how old I am or how much practice it takes.ย

  1. I think I like you, Patricia Gay….

  2. Thank you so much for this info/conversation on the problems with ATK. I hope you are sincere, in who you are. I have been so frustrated with trying to print out recipes from ATK ; It’s been a favorite show of mine .
    I called ATK customer service about problems with printing recipes ,
    & was told rudely , I must not know what I’m doing….
    I’m not exactly a novice….I’m elderly, & in a lot of pain though…..
    There’s always an overlay on the recipe, so you can’t print it out with the free membership. Now , KNOW that I HAVE bought many ATK & Country Kitchen magazines , for years at the book store, so I’m not trying to get for nothing , but can’t afford to pay that much , at one time , for a subscription . I am so grateful to all of you , because I was going to order their cookbook , and then would have been on their list ,& going through what many of you are….(Been married 62 HAPPY years). Yes Patricia Gay ,Julia Child was a very special Lady, love the reruns .

    God bless you Patricia Gay & all others who cared enough to share this info with us,
    I am so grateful ……… Bunny

    • Bunny, it is a shame that ATK does not live up to its appearance as an honest company. Far too many people have complained about being oversold, pressured to buy, and unable to cancel unwanted materials. I have wanted a few of their cookbooks, so I turned to used booksellers such as abebooks.com, a highly reputable company. You can also go to amazon.com and get The Complete America’s Test Kitchen Cookbook for $20 and no hassle dealing with ATK. Bunny, you’re trying so hard, so kudos to you! You seem like a sweet lady. You’re also pretty smart! Good luck with things and keep cooking. Also, keep in touch and let me know how things are going! โ€” Patty
