  1. Just cruised over from whipup, where you were featured. Awesome cool site! Just what I need! THANK YOU!

    I'm glad you include so many recipes low in saturated fats and cholesterol -- I was never a worrywort about such things until scary numbers showed up at my medical exam. Now trans fats send me screaming in the other direction.

    Thanks again!

  2. Me Too!

    Please keep it up! I'm a busy vegetarian in NYC and need someone else to do my thinking for me after a long day's work. This way I can do all my shopping on Sunday and just follow the directions when I get home. I'm spreading the word to all my other veg friends, so I hope you are in it for the long haul.

  3. Another Whipper-Upper, here. I'm so thrilled to have found you - this is just what I've been looking for. And all those recipes look delicious. Can't wait to get started!
