    So many gorgeous recipes . . . but alas I'm too late again, today. I'll try at least a few of them anyway, of course. In fact, I just made Sour Mash Mash (addictive, in a mildly quirky way). Thanks to the editors for the EPN. ;o)
    boulangere October 6, 2011
    Love the addictive in a mildly quirky way! And congratulations on your lovely EP.

    This recipe already is an EP with tasting notes by boulangere.
    victoriaspencer October 6, 2011
    Oh yes, Boulangere is right so this recipe is not up for testing. Sorry about that and do choose another.
    boulangere October 6, 2011
    I thought that sounded awfully familiar!

    Actually it's hardlikearmour who's right about the recipe—and of course boulangere is right too!
