Annmarie, it's always fun hanging out with you and Kevin! Thanks for
popping by and leaving a note on our blog. :-)

We feel like we've been friends with you and Kevin forever. It's amazing
how we think up/do so many things the same, isn't it? We're "in the flow"
together, or something. ;-)

Your potato pancake recipe will be coming in a day, or two, depending on
when you signed up for the free eBooks. THe ice cream cake recipe is
delicious, too, but it won't be something Kevin can eat right now.

Lots and lots of love to you both,
