  1. The Kitchen Aid article was inspiring. It’s so nice to see people doing some good in the world. Thank you for sharing.

  2. That cake is AMAZING! I don’t think I could make it though, I’m not that skilled a baker. The potatoes, on the other hand, are just my speed. Thanks Shiksa! Happy Fourth!

  3. You’ve chosen some of my favorites, too. Thanks for the introducing me to The Tablet. Interesting reading! See? You’re a wonderful teacher. :)
