  1. Hi Dave,
    I just read through this posting and I can’t wait to try every one of the fall veggie recipes.

Your site is the most exciting food based site on the internet. You are a marvel.

    1. David,

      I had a sneaky suspicion that you occasionally stepped away from devouring your site, so now I know some names who help you do the impossible….Thanks to all; since I discovered this site, I have almost never looked at any of my old favourites; and I am a total newbie to the kitchen, so I am at your mercy.
