Hi Lynne,

I suggest you add ‘Vegetarian (Dishes)’ to your categories. Likely, there will be a certain degree of item crossover (between, say, ‘Salads’ and ‘Vegetarian’) but adding such a category will make navigating your blog far less time consuming, especially as recipes/blogs start to accumulate for vegetarians. Not to mention, it shows you’re considerate of that diet which which gives you veggie points.

Hi Lynne:

Great website. My wife enjoys reading your recipes and I hope that she starts cooking some of the great food you provide recipes for.

Your photos are great with each dish looking fabulous. Whenever I check in, I always see several recipes that I want to try from both you and Grace Marie. It is so very generous of Grace Marie to share her recipes here so that when I miss a class of Lunch with Friends at Bristol Farms I can find often find the recipe here.

Thanks for making it so easy to print the recipes.

Nothing came to mind for me to make for dinner so I visited your blog. You always inspire me with temping recipes. Now I’m off the the grocery to pick up a couple ingredients.

How nice of Grace Marie to share her recipes also. Sometimes I can’t make it to her cooking classes at Bristol Farms, so I enjoy checking your website for her recipes, too.

Thanks for great recipes and fabulous photos.

Hi Lynne,

Found your website through Grace-Marie’s cooking school.
I’ve been going to cooking classes with my group of friends for years now.
As I look at your beautiful website there are so many of your recipes that I’d like to try like those fabulous blue potato appetizers.
After I’ve tried your recipes I’ll let you know how they come out.
Hope to see you at one of Grace’s classes.
Thanks for the great job of making everything look so incredibly delicious!

Hi my name is Ilean. I came across your blog by simply seeking a way to make my own adorable sweet tartlets and it brought me here you your amazing blog! I love your work and I too am fascinated with cooking, recipes, entertaining and trying new things! You are such an inspiration! I love how you take the opportunity to visit these nice restaurants and capture chefs at their very best! I would love to do the same. Maybe visit Tuscany and take a few classes or even take a chocolate class while capturing all those wonderful moments. I love your work. Is it easy blogging? Did you take any classes? I’m a kinda new to this culinary field. Although, I’ve been cooking for quite a while considering now I’m 29 years old! Where did the years go! =) anyway, I have 6 more classes to go and I’m done with my advance certificate but I know I’m not going to stop there. I guess it will be a never ending journey for me but I want to thank you for inspiring me =)

Hi Lynn,
I came across your website when I was looking a recipe for Korean Chicken Wings with Gochujang sauce. I tried the spicy Korean chicking wings at one of the Korean restaurants in LA last time and I would like to make my own. I bought the Gojujang sauce too and I cannot wait to make those from your recipe. I love to bake, cook, and everything to do with food. I posted around the world pastries and food on my fb.
Thanks for your beautiful web.
