    :shimmy: Thank you for the recipes which you made sound so delicious, and effortlessly easy to make. I took my sweet time at your website because it was so inviting, not only the background, but your simple, tireless, wording of each recipe. Instead of nervous, I actually relaxed, enjoying, and savoring every word you had written. I felt as if I had been in your kitchen sitting there with you having tea, or coffee and the smell of fresh bread coming out of the oven filling the air. Reading your inviting, warm hospitable words, I could actually smell the fresh baked bread. Thank you for your warm inviting ways. I do believe you write, you have a way with words. Thank you, and may God Bless you and your family. It has been sincerely my pleasure. Liz
