You are a Class Act  Diane.  Thanks!

Arnold, owner INN AT DEEP CANYON, CA.

Diane, this is just amazing. Everything you feature is just divine. I want to cook all your recipes. Since I do a baked pear recipe, your baked pear recipe jumped out at me. I wish I could have sent you twice as many oranges. You surely need more to do all these great ideas.”

Finally had a chance to make your French onion soup recipe. Absolutely delicious. And, I like the cheesy bread on the side. Thanks for sharing your passion with us!”


So I made the shrimp, summer corn and tomato salad before I knew it came from your blog. The BEST (but I did cook the corn under the broiler without charring it – to me it is a cleaner taste than raw) It was a fabulous entree in this heat.”

Liz, Kate Stanton Inn

I am blown away! You are the definition of resilience my friend.
