I apologize for being away so long, but we've had a death in the family. My dear sweet mother-in-law passed into eternity late last month and, as you'd expect, we've been attending to family matters.

Charlene was such a great wife, mother and grandmother. She had a sweet and gracious Southern spirit that was occasionally mixed with a touch of her Scotch-Irish feistiness. She was the best mother-in-law and grandmother to our girls that a guy could possibly ask for, and she's already greatly missed.

As the Bible states, the Lord gives and the Lord takes away, and our life is but a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes. I praise God for the vapor that was Charlene's life.

I've got a lot of catching up to do, so please bear with me. As always, I greatly appreciate your readership and I look forward to bringing you some goodies very soon. I cooked up some killer Mexican tortas for Cinco de Mayo, and I've got a great book review coming up.

Stay tuned...

John,

I am so sorry for your loss. She sounds like she was a terrific woman who will greatly be missed. I've always enjoyed your recipes and insight into cooking and wanted to express my sentiments.

Best to you from Kentucky,

William
