Before I get to today’s recipe, I wanted to let you know that I won’t be sending out any newsletters next week. Nothing bad or sad is happening; in fact, quite the opposite. I’ve got something really exciting in the works, and I have to spend the rest of this month working my you-know-what off to get it ready for all of you. I can’t say what it is yet, only that I’ll be back here on February 1st with a big announcement that explains everything. Thanks so much for understanding, and stay tuned.
