    Phew! I checked your site yesterday and it was down. I thought you quit.

    You are not the most prolific of bloggers. However, you are dedicated to excellence which I greatly admire. Subsequently, I am hooked.

    I, for some reason, in my own small mind, named this site as “Cooking through Alinea for grownups”.

    There are quite a few people doing this now (cooking through) but I enjoy your precision and excellent photos.

    Keep up the excellent work!

  2. Thanks, Rhonda. Yes, yesterday I moved the site to a new server to accommodate the traffic and disk space for all the pix. And, if id did this any more frequently, I think I’d go broke!
