Forgive me, please. Perhaps sometimes I say too much, perhaps not enough. I have said it before, and I will say it again -- I am so grateful to be part of this family. Its not just about cooking, or "chefing," or whatever you want to call it. Its about understanding the underlying makeup, spirit, soil, skin... character, that we share. If I offended anyone, I deeply apologize. That was never my intention. I felt, and still feel, that I found a place to go and share, even if my education and awards weren't in the culinary field. However, my many "teachers" as I grew up I think would be very proud of me in that even though I have a masters in biology, it is the identification of herbs and spices at the knee of Mrs. Feeley that I identify with the most..... We are all human, and sometimes our emotions cause us to quiver. okay. Just let me say, that what I love most about this group/forum, is that we "get it." So, when are you all coming to my house for supper?
