    I made a mistake and pressed and only one star came up, I am so thrilled with the latest batch of recipes that you have e-mailed me, theyare 4s and 5s. Keep up the usual good work, mambo sprouts, and yes, i have tried them, and yes, i do like them. And I have made the parsnip latkes from a recipe off the computer, and yes, I have made the california salad, and I bought a while bunch of dried cranberrries, and fresh cranberries, and have used some of them, in salads, and apricots, and I bought the avocade, i would like to make some other recipes,and salards, and i have been playing around with them. And I put fruit in jello. And I have been wanting a recipe for pumpkin soup, as I had it in williamsburg, and liked it so much. I have a rice cooker but need to learn how to use it, and I splurged and asked some asians, where Ibuy some of my produce, where to buy bamboo steamers, and they gave me good information, even to pricing. And I like it. Again, thanks a lot, and buy the way, I use either canola oil, or soybean oil, and I like the taste and texture, and it is cheaper, I have used it in cooking and salads with different types of vinegar.
