Well-said, Marlaine! It really is a Gift to all of us. Have been too busy trying out new recipes to come over here and add my voice to the chorus of cheers.
I love being able to hold the book
and daydream my way through it (unlike all the wonderful info contained in the elusive electrons on this forum).
And I appreciate your personal comments spread throughout, Karen--they really convey your wonderful philosophy of food and life and are just the encouragement I needed. You've given me a new lease on LCing and this whole WOE.
It's also great to see the classics from some of the founding forum members. And the suggested menus are wonderful. I could go on!
Thanks especially for all the fabulous tofu recipes--a nice change from all the Meat, Poultry, Seafood (though your recipes for those pique my interest too)... So far I've tried Tofu-Roni and Cheese
--really missed Mac and Cheese LCing and before that low-fatting (blecch), and this is even better than I remembered that dish. And To-frites
! WOW! Some of the others I'ved tried so far, all fantastic: Upside-down goat cheese souffle, Colin's Omega Waffles, Meat-Lover's Pizza, Turkey Snackin' Cake and Tiramisu
So many recipes, so little time... I agree with Upback: the Cream Cheese, Coconut and Lemon Mounds
leapt out of the book at me, too!
