    Hi Jane,

    My wife, Nancy Augustine told me at dinner last night that she knows someone who is more of a foody than me!

    I’ll now be enjoying your blog and eating/tempting my way through your recipes.

      I feel like I have known you for years John. Nancy has talked about how much you love food and how much she appreciates your cooking. I wish we could have met during the time Nancy and I worked together. Please enjoy the blog and let me know your ideas!!

  2. Hi Jane, I recently learned a good lesson: When making a simple cake, using buttermilk, it baked with fairly large holes thoughout the layer. As I problem solved, I remembered the buttermilk was unusally thick (the half full carton had been given to me by a friend empenting out her frige). I should have picked up on the issue when filling the cake pan and seeing how thick the batter was.
    Solution I can have made in using the too thick buttermilk: added a bit of water or milk before adding to the batter. I learn something each day. Jaxon
