This said, it is our intention to provide you with unique, original, tested recipes and a wonderful browsing experience. We are happy to hear from you anytime you require further assistance.

Recipes online, featured in newsletters or previous issues, occasionally make the cut and graduate to a new cookbook manuscript, in print or digitally. In those cases, you might discover a broken link.  Do let us know and we can confirm if it is a mechanical glitch or the recipe has indeed gone on to other pastures.

My cookbooks are available at,, Barnes and Noble, Chapters Indigo, Kindle and Itunes - and all my books are offered in ebooks or in print. On Amazon, you can (in the U.S.) obtain Kindle Book Match which bundles together my print and ebook for one bargain price. Be sure to check it out!
