To all my readers who celebrate it, I'd like to wish you a very merry Christmas.
And don't forget, the easiest way to support Casual Kitchen is to buy your items at Amazon using the various links here. Just click over to Amazon, and EVERY purchase you make during that visit pays a modest affiliate commission to support my work here. Best of all, this comes at zero extra cost to you.
As always, I welcome your thoughts.
