You are so gracious with your compliments. Thank you. But I understand that you have time constraints. With all the fantastic cooking that you do, it's fine. I enjoy what and how you cook. I am the one that has learned a lot from your posts. You need to trade in the Hasty Bake for a Hastier Bake. Something that's faster. Bye!!!!
