  1. Hi Anthony,

    I'll have to take a peek at Janice Baker's website. You know me...I love new recipes.(smile)

    I was diagnosed with hypertension (quite severe at times), and sodium is a big issue for me. No salt! Although, I have to admit to using just a pinch now and then.

    As always, it was a pleasure visiting you. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Looking forward to your new recipes and excellent advice.(smile)

    'Til next time,
