What you're saying..

I just wanted to thank you for "Desperation Dinners".  I'm a wife and mom of two little girls, who is also a civil engineer who decided to attend nursing school.  My crazy schedule leaves me little time to cook. Now I can prepare yummy meals for my family every night in less time than it takes for pizza to be delivered!

Thank you so much!!

They look like snow sprinkled mounds of wonder, with the fresh citrus flavor of summer. Way to combine the seasons!
