                     - Josephine W., Flasher, N.D.

                     - Ashley S., Lakeland, F.L.

"I found myself laughing so hard while reading the stories in your cookbook that I shut the blinds, so my neighbors wouldn't think I was crazy. Every recipe I've tried in it has been great." 
                     - Dan K., Fargo, N.D.
