    Elaine sounds yummy. I’d like for you to consider putting together a booklet with all of these recipes for dummies like me who have a hard time keeping track of pieces of paper!!! I would like to try all of the recipes!

    Hey Jeanne! I will be putting a few recipes into the book, but only ones that are from friends and family. Some of the other ones (I’ve linked to) are copyrighted so I wouldn’t be able to use those. So get the book and enjoy some of them :)
