  2. Yes, Anthony, my family will enjoy this recipe. I've never tried many recipes with raspberries, so this will be a delightful change. I'm rapidly accumulating recipes...and I'm enjoying it, too!(smile)

    Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter. Many blessings to you...

  4. Hi Mattie,
    It's so good to know you are trying something different. Change can be good, but it hard--no matter what. However, I say, one-step-at-a-time, and you are doing that. Yea!!!! Raspberries are a great change and a nice fruit. They add a nice taste to things and I'm glad your collecting recipes, too. I'm a collector of cookbooks, aka, 'cookbook junkie.'
    Enjoy hearing from you, always.

    Blessed Easter thoughts and prayers to you and your family, too. Thank you so much.
    Take care,
    ~Anthony
