Thanks for the link! Although the comments did get a bit bonkers (okay a lot bonkers!), there were a lot of people who found my post educational and had good questions and positive things to say, too.

Daniel said...

Any time Dana, that was yet another exceptional (and educational!) post--exactly the kind I like to bring to my readers. You've really been on a roll. Thanks for stopping by.

Daniel -- Dana beat me to it! Thanks again for the link to the corn recipe on my blog. If it gets just one person to try it out, it was totally worth writing and posting about the method. The best part, of course, is the *eating*.


Kasie said...

Daniel, thanks for the continued support! I always get excited when I see that you've left a comment or that I've made the CK Friday Links. You're the best! :)

Daniel said...

You are welcome Kasie! That was an excellent--and easy!--recipe.

Hi Dan,
I saw this movie last night and I kept thinking that it would be good discussion fodder for CK readers.
