I have just one question. What's the point in no longer listing the new recipes on your Web page (of the paper, not this
blog)? I'm not likely to scan each story for recipes. Lots of places to get more ideas much more easily. I'll just eliminate the LA Times as a source of food information.

I will be not be reading any answer on this blog.

Bye-Bye! It's been a good and useful several years reading
every Wednesday. Good luck!
