    Hi Natasha! So glad I found your website, itś reinvigorated my love for cooking 🙂 Ivé printed and have a 3 ring binder full of your recipes and I´ve started typing some of mine up. Just wanted to send you a note that with many of your recipes I don´t change anything except for some I add bacon (never enough bacon!) and instead of using olive oil to cook the chicken, I cook it in the bacon grease, adds some nice flavor to the chicken.

    Thanks again!
