My wifi took an unexpected vacation so I just learned about your win. Congratulations! Ramps are in my fridge so I will be making another of your wonderful Georgian recipes today.
Kukla June 15, 2015
Annie, thank you for congratulating me, but this recipe is not a Georgian at all; this is a combination of Asian recipes!

I saw this new recipe as I logged in while in the process of making your sensational ricotta lemon bars for the first time in a while to see if there were any tweaks in the comments that I didn't annotate on my very used printout. Will be making this new recipe tomorrow. Much appreciated.
