  41. Daniel says:

  64. Margaret McKay says:

    I made your pumpkin soup recipe at our son-in-law’s , but with fresh ginger and it was a huge hit.
    I love your father’s feelings about eating inventions…..that was one of the rules in our house when our three were growing up. What is great is that the next generation is following along the same lines with the grandchildren!

  65. The Chocolate Hazelnut Spread recipe will be the first one I try. We avoid artificial ingredients because of my daughter’s ADHD, so I’ve been looking for a fantastic all natural recipe. Beautiful book, congratulations!

  66. Amanda Gorton says:

    The Quick Pork San Choy Bow looks nutritious and delicious, using in season fresh ingredients means it must be economical too!

  75. Liz A says:

    Thought I’d commented earlier but can’t find it… My favouritist favourite (which is subject to change on an hourly basis!) would be the tender beef stir fry. I love your little hints and tips through the book! Thanks for the giveaways and congrats on 2 years 🙂

    • Thanks Liz! 🙂 On all counts! How is the French Oven Set going?

      • Liz A says:

    This is a BRILLIANT book! I’ve published e-books and I know the HOURS of effort it takes to create something so appealing. I think it would look beautiful in hard cover. Your photos are SO ENTICING…my hubbie asked what I was reading as I kept groaning ‘Yuuuuuum! Yuuuuuummmmmm!’ That carrot soup looks so divine. Can’t wait to make it-and I don’t even like carrot soup!
    You’ve inspired me to make some of these yummy looking meals and I LOVE how SIMPLE AND ACCESSIBLE you have made WHOLE FOODS. SO practical! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and talent! Cheers and smiles, Katarina
