I just found your blog and can't wait to make your recipes. I live in Colorado too but at a higher altitude. I'm at 7700 feet, would I need to make additional adjustments to your recipes?

Love hearing this Joyce, thank you so much! I am so glad you are here. I do not believe you will need to make additional adjustments at 7700 feet, I have had people make my recipes up to 9000 and they have worked, but if there is ever a question, let me know and I will try and figure it out for you.

I am making the homemade vanilla extract. I have a bottle of Vodka that is 100% proof, 50% alcohol. Is this okay to use or would it be too strong? Thanks.

Hi Barbara, I am not 100% sure, I think it should be fine, I would suggest making a small bottle to begin with if you are concerned, or dilute your 100 proof with a lower proof. The Vodka I use is 80 proof. Let me know how it works out!

Hi Kathleen, I made your Penne a la vodka last week and am making it again - delish! Quick question....when the recipe calls for 4 oz. of Parmesan cheese, is that 1/4 cup or 4 oz. weighed on a scale? There’s a big difference between the two. Thanks so much! - Derri

Hi Derri -- it is 4 oz, personally I love lots, but truly you can put as much or little as you'd like! So glad you loved it. I just buy a 4 oz (roughly) block and grate it myself. But have also cheated plenty of times using pre-grated cheese. Merry Christmas!

Hi Kathleen, I have a question that I hope has an easy answer. I want to print your Mimi's copy cat bran muffin recipe, for my own use, and wish that there is a way to utilize a printable version, without all the photos. How do I do that? Thanks a bunch! Killer recipes!

Hi Cynthia, absolutely, that's so strange! It should print with only one picture, I'm attaching the printable here. Let me know if you got it and it works.
