By the way I have some announcements! I got a Google search bar so if you have a particular recipe in mind, this is an easy way to find it. I have mentioned this before, but you do have the option to subscribe to this blog by email. If you do so, you will NEVER get spam, just a message each time I post something new. Lastly, my poll is feeling a bit lonely right now, please contribute!
