    I like your recipe on the dried cranberries and pecans, I would make changes because I do not eat salt, but I think that you can eat couscous, and or pasta. etc. And i am going to save the recipes so that I can take them off the computer a lot. Thanks a lot again, and by the way, do you have any chanukah recipes, and maybe some dairy recipes.
