  1. You obviously know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

  2. What’s up with the ginger candy recipe? Multiple ‘6 hour’ resting periods? The total time from start to finish is almost 24 hours…Is this correct? For that kind of time, must be an amazing recipe…Just checking first…
