  1. I sent this as an email, but maybe it’s better to post as a comment….
    Esme: Hello! I am scheduled to have a granola recipe featured on the Sharing is Caring recipe exchange in December but it seems as though you are posting more recipes and you were encouraging bloggers to send more than one? So, I am sending a few more recipe links that would be good to make this fall. Let me know if you can find a place for them.
    Thanks for doing what you do on your blog. It’s lovely to see so many different kinds of cooking in one place!
