i feel so sad . you have beautiful photograpic skills, a good camera, a nice selection of recipes, good dialog and no commentors to speak of. maybe someone should direct some traffic to your site…maybe a comment in The Kitchen. i’ve added you to my short list of favorites (i’m finicky about picking favorites)

I purchased these ceramic cups at crate & barrel about a year ago… Think they still carry them though. They also come in a larger size, perfect for hot chocolate, or other desserts! Hope that helps 🙂
