      Would love to have a “real” hold-in-my-hand cookbook with every one of your most popular recipes since you started.
      I only eat certain fish * chicken breast and I take many of your meat recipes and substitute fish or chicken in it. I really appreciate the recipe cards especially with a picture of finished food – Iam one of those who like to see how it is supposed to look.
      Thank you for all your recipes and hard work!!!

      Hey Natasha, just a few lines to let you know that I did not ever like to cook before 2020. Then I found your fun videos among a couple other sites and have had fun delighting my sweet husband with your amazing recipes. Recently, I made your Chicken Pot Pie and it is the first time in a year since he’s been rating the new meals I’ve been preparing for him, a 10. I took photos but do not see a place where I can add them here. I did post them on Facebook however and our family and friends have been oohing and ahhhhing over them. Thank you for making cooking fun! Please know, you are my favorite cook. I love your format and your uniqueness. You are so much fun! Blessings to you, your sweet family and your business!!
