I am full tilt for the photo shoot on my book, For Food's Sake and so we may just go a little quiet around here…(though I doubt it!) life in the fast lane I guess! It is all very exciting and not much sleep is being had, all because of each of my loyal recipe readers/do-ers/mixers! Thanks so much and this recipe is a little gift in return. Please enjoy and keep sending me moral support through the web….I'm listening! ;D
