    Cheers! Joanne

    1. I would love a sampling of each, maybe get 4 friends together and have everyone make 2. :)

  3. What about The Nut Tree's marshmallow sauce? Or Garden of Taxco's bananas in cream?

  4. Could you pleeeeeeaaaaaaaaasssssssseeeeeee get the recipe for Del Taco's chicken soft tacos? I ate 10 at a time when I was preggo with my twins!

  5. Thanks so much for your hard work! Recipes look yummy and I'll give you an update when I try some. BTW, I've been looking through all of the 'copycat' recipe sites (except yours which I just found) for Sweet Tomatoes Red Pepper Slaw. I think Google thinks I've lost my mind -- can't find it anywhere. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks again!!

  6. What about the cheese cake malt with a touch strawberry.
