    My husband has been the cook in our home for the majority of our 31 years together, and he is an excellent cook. However he recently said to me he didn’t want to cook anymore, which brought me to your site. Since my first visit about 2 weeks ago I have made 10 dinners and 6 of them were your recipes. Last night I made Chicken Kiev and as with the other 5 recipes they came out nearly perfect. The oil was too hot, my fault. I have never been a foodie so cooking never interested me before, but due to your website now have an interest in life again. We are retired and never had kids so there’s really not much going on. Now I find myself thinking and planning all the time. I visit your site at least 2 times a day just looking at what I am ready to take on, only nothing scares me. The way you present these recipes is so wonderful and complete that they leave no confusion as to how to proceed. I just want to thank you so much. I never wrote a thank you to a website before. Oh, and my husband and 4 pugs thank you too! They like all the meat recipes. Thanks again. Linda

    Your comment was such a blessing to me! Thanks for writing in and sharing your story with me Linda :). 4 pugs? How cute! πŸ™‚ I’m so happy you are enjoying the blog and recipes. I hope you find many new favorite recipes here. – Natasha  Reply
