  1. Hi Cindy,
    This is great stuff, only thing is I do not cook much, I eat whatever Mom cooks. :>)

    I'm looking for your journal and juicey things you've said you posted here. :>) Please help me travel throughout the site without having to read every recipe. :>)

    I'm thoroughly lost amongst this sea of food, almost too good to be true. I can tell you have put a great deal of time into it. But busy old me just doesn't have all that much time to read it. :>(.

    Tell me where the good stuff is at and I'll jump right in. I love you much, ABBA

  2. The banana cake is my favorite cake and i really like it. But are you sure its enough for 12 persons if every one wants to east 1 slice?
    I think its good for 4 persons :) as i love it.
