In case you didn't realize, the word "mary" on your site is spelled incorrectly. I had similar issues on my website which hurt my credibility until someone pointed it out and I discovered some of the services like or which help with these type of issues.

Can you please repeat that recipe for "meat"loaf? I was so excited about it but didn't save it in time! And I want to compliment you on Gourmandelle! It's fantatic!

Thanks, Joyce (an American living in Italy)

Hi! Please forgive me if this information or answer to this question is somewhere on the site, however, I wanted to know if you are working towards providing nutritional information for your recipes? You know, the information regarding calories, carbs, nutrients such as vitamins and protein etc. ? I have begun a weight-loss diet but I’ve been eating prepared food (-as healthy and whole as I can find) and I’ve had a lot of success but I want to gradually get back into preparing my own meals It’s a little difficult as I normally just cook for myself and most recipes are not practical just to make for one person If you have any resources on this please let me know-thank you so much ! ( from an American with maternal Romanian dissent [third generation :) ] )

Hi, Karen! :D I am actually considering this right now, but am not yet sure which will be the best way to do it. So you may see nutritional info for all recipes in the near future. :D Also, I will write a series of articles on meal prep, which I think you may find useful on your weight-loss journey!
