    I just wanted to say that your new site is spectacular. I’m looking forward to reading about your food adventures here.

    Will you also talk about books here? I miss the old Advertiser Book Club. I was never more than a lurker but I still found it very engaging to listen to.

    Wishing you luck, Wanda. Been wondering what would happen after merger of two papers. Your mainland friend and faithful follower. Jeanne

    I am so glad you have a website. I am going to miss your writing in the paper but this may even be more accessible. YUM!!

    Ok–So it’s gong to be November next week and that grand foodie event Thanksgiving is right around the corner. . . I always looked forward to your column in the paper for a new spin on the festivities. I am going to do the turkey again on the weber grill again to keep the house cool (in Hawaii that is a consideration) and have that awesome smokey flavor. I might also do baked bananas if I have a bunch by then as the tropical version of yams with the marshmallows. Do you or any of your followers have any suggestions??
