The Nicest Present
Under the tree the gifts enthrall,
But the nicest present of them all
Is filling our thoughts with those who care,
Wanting our Christmas joy to share.
To you, whom I'm often thinking of,
I send my holiday joy and love,
Then more recipe files to be posted
After the New Year has been toasted.
April Fool's Day I hope that you enjoyed my little prank. I think I'll leave it in place for a few days so that everyone has a chance to see it. Keep the donations coming in so that the dreaded "404" doesn't become a reality! Just a couple of dollars every so often from each of you is all it takes to keep current with the expenses for this site.
St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, but celebrating with kegs of green beer is getting a bit dated. That is why Caravella Limoncello developed a more sophisticated cocktail for the green holiday: the St. Patrick's Day Mint-tini. They'd love for me to share their recipe with you, so here it is!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ONE AND ALL
OK, something new from the Emporium, folks. As sort of a holiday present to you, I am going to give a try at providing a recipe series complete with pictures for those of you who are using MasterCook 5 or above. At each offering there will be two versions to choose between; the standard version that you have become accustomed to (the recipe export files without pictures) and a much larger zipped file containing a recipe file, a picture file, and a Read-Me file. The read-me file will be your instructions for adding these recipes to your collection.
Also, the donation situation has improved and I thank each and every one of you who made a donation for your generosity, but there are still many visitors who don't see or choose to ignore this plea. But, just like the vicar at church, I will be constantly passing the collection plate.
I'm sorry that my recipe uploads haven't been all that prolific lately. I had serious health issues at the first part of this year and then my dinky-clunky computer decided to have a serious crash in which I lost all of the collected recipes that I was currently working on. I've been busy trying to re-collect those recipes and more.
Also, The donation situation has left me disheartened. Some visitors were generous and made a donation, but the majority of the visitors just grabbed the recipes and ran. More people will have to give to make this work. It doesn't have to be a large donation. Consider a donation of just a dollar or two for each file downloaded. That amounts to only one or two cents per recipe.
