      Hi Susie,

      Thank you for your comment. I have some copies of our cookbook here at home – if you’d like to buy a copy I’d be happy to meet you somewhere next week. If you’d like to purchase a cookbook, please follow up with me in private by email to sarahnasello@gmail.com

      We don’t sell the olive oil – that is all done by our friend, Peter Schultz, and we just promote his annual sale because we want to make sure he is able to do it again next year! The deadline for this year’s order was Sept. 25 and is now closed until next fall, but I believe you can find the oil at Shotwell’s in Fargo when the shipment comes in next month. They may still have some in stock from last year’s order if you need it sooner than mid-December. The name of the oil is Mistra Estates Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

      FYI – As much as we’d love to take credit, the Greek trips are also organized by Peter Schultz. I would be happy to give him your email address so that he can follow up with you on any future trips he may have planned. I have heard wonderful things from some of the folks who have traveled with him on previous adventures.

      Thank you for reading and have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving!

    I love your website. I get so many great ideas and recipes! I have a baking question. I have a dairy allergy and cannot bake with butter. Can I substitute Earth’s Balance Baking Sticks for butter? Thank you for such a great giveaway opportunity!!

      Dear Karenann,
      Thank you for your question. I must confess that I am not familiar with the product you mention, but according to their website it is a 1:1 substitute for butter in recipes. If you give it a go, I’d love to hear back on your success.

      Thank you so much for your kind comments – we love to hear from our readers. Have a happy Thanksgiving!
