    You have some amazing stuff out there. Know that you have one more regular reader. Now all I need is a little courage to try out some of those chef-like recipes 🙂

      Chef-like? Aw shucks, you make me blush. If I can do this, anyone can. Really. If you were here, you’d see my husband nodding fervently. :):):)

    You have a myriad of great recipes here. I made your cheesecake once, and for some reason the recipe isn’t properly linked, so I can’t seem to find it again.
    Ah technical errors :(.


    • Sharmila

      Oops, sorry about that. I’ve fixed it and it should now lead you to the right recipe. Thanks for letting me know.
      Hopefully you won’t face the same problem again on my site, but if you do, you can also look for a recipe in the search window on the right.
