    Does your site have a contact page? I'm having a tough time locating it but, I'd like to send you an e-mail. I've got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.. test

    Curious that the written recipe is different than the one she tells us in the video. Much different.
    1 good tablespoon of vanilla spoken versus 1/2 teaspoon in the written version will make a huge difference in the flavor.
