I'd love to have one of those Ninji's. My sister has one and she loves it. Happy New Year!!

I have tried many of the recipes you have listed here and they have been yummy. A little too yummy because I now need to start working off some of those extra pounds! Thanks for offering a fantastic giveaway!

  48. Keep up the great recipes! I really enjoy using my family as my experiment(ers)...I think they enjoy it too(wink).
