      I began watching on 3ABN about two months ago. I look forward to viewing you Monday thru Thursday. I was disappointed that I couldn’t view the show on Friday but you can’t have everything. I have lived a life of unhealthy eating for years which has resulted in bad health. Your living life fresh delicious looking recipes has inspired me to change my lifestyle. I’m not going cold turkey like I heard you did and congratulations because I know that took some discipline. you’re proof that it can be done. Thanks for the inspiration.

      May God continue to bless and keep you.

    My husband was watching your cooking show last evening which was featured on 3ABN. He was very impressed with your recipe for Italiano Zucchini Pizza and was wondering where he could purchase the machine to spiral cut the zucchini.
