    A Treasure and a Wonderful Treat

    Your Pesach Anything's Possible Cookbook ended up being a treasure. I made at least 6 different recipes from this sensational book over Pesach and have yet to try out quite a few more recipes.
    I bought MANY MANY cookbooks and subscribe to many cooking magazines and mailing lists but I have NEVER encountered a cookbook whose every page had a new recipe that just demanded to be tried .
    I'm sticking to my words- what a treasure and wonderful treat this book has turned out to be. I am an absolute FAN !!
