  1. Dear Pati,

    Two weeks ago, I discovered your website by searching for a seafood broth. I made the broth and have used it to prepare a seafood soup. This recipe has worked great for me and the broth was rich and tasty. Thank you for this recipe.

    If the broth was great, I am very sure the rest of the recipes are excellent as well. I will incorporate a few in my cooking. Again, Thank You!

  2. I found your show on PBS for the first time today. Your son said something about the delicious chicken. I had chicken defrosted and wanted to try your recipe. Unable to find it on the website. I guess I will just view other programs who do have their recipes available.
