Whew!  We’ve had a whirlwind few days.  We had a fantastic book launch event last Thursday, and we can’t say thank you enough to those who came!  We then jetted off to Denver for a great event there and finally made it back to our homes yesterday.  I’m going to post some pictures from the past few days on The Scoop later, but I feel like it’s been so long since we’ve had a recipe post up here that we …
