If it sparkles, can be plugged in and belongs in a kitchen, I have it - hence Twink. Elf reminds me of someone (or thing) that magically makes and delivers something scrumptious without any effort on my part. The cookbooks in my kitchen have dust on them, but no elf has "delivered" anything to our table. I love my little Cooking Light magazines and Light and Tasty. I do mix up those recipes a bit - love the blueberry french toast bakes. Your simple suggestions sound wonderful. Could you pop on over this evening and leave something for dinner?

I haven't been able to make a good goulash - ever, but that doesn't keep me from trying.
*lol* where have you been? In the south?

here is a Goulash and.. well.. I haven't found a Spaetzle recipe.. will do it tomorrow... ;o)

You are a doll. Thank you very much for that goulash recipe. I will definitely try it out tomorrow. As for the spaetzle, I have a box of Maggi or I can run down to the local bakery and they have some.

You have no idea how many websites I have crawled through over the past week looking for an affective way to go about learning more about cooking. I will continue to do my research. Just keep me in mind if you have any more suggestions.
