  1. Love this! Congrats on needed more help, I’m sure someone great will come your way. I can’t wait to share this with some of my friends, I think you’d be great to work with.

  2. Well, well,well I love the growth❤️ I’m so happy for you and I know you’ll find the right person. If only I didn’t live on Cape Cod, and were 20 years younger ……. Good luck with your search, I look forward to any changes. Keep those delicious recipes coming?

  3. Erin, For Mother’s Day 2016, my niece gave me a Meyer lemon tree and I wanted to find the perfect dessert to make for her with the freshly hand-picked lemons. While searching for a lemon meringue pie I discovered your Lemon Cream Pie. This recipe seemed to be an excellent cross between the meringue pie and a cream cheese cake. While on your website yesterday, I noticed you are looking for a remote communications manager and that peaked my interest as well. Besides being an organized, creative, grammar-nerd who loves cooking, I am a self-employed (16yrs) graphic designer (a career that spans 36yrs) with a wide range of experience, including designing ads for client’s websites. My excitement waned though, when I noticed that the application deadline had passed over a week ago, so I put all my attention back on my pie for dinner and tried to forget about a seemingly wonderful job opportunity. If, in fact, you have found a qualified partner, I respectfully ask that they correct the numerous typos I discovered in the Lemon Cream Pie as well as the Darn Good Whole Wheat Pie Crust recipes. If, on the other hand, your search continues, I wish to be considered to work with you, even in a proof-reading capacity! Oh, and the pie? It got rave reviews! I think the homegrown lemons, sans chemicals, were the perfect touch! P.S. I like your website and plan to search it for more tasty delights for the upcoming holidays!

    1. Hi Dianne! I am so happy to hear that you loved the Lemon Cream Pie! I bet it was amazing with homegrown lemons. I apologize for any typos—I spend a lot of time on my recipes and posts, to the extent that sometimes I read what I *think* I wrote, versus what is actually on the screen (plus, by the time I test and publish three a week, my attention to detail isn’t always what I would wish it could be if I had more time). That said, if you ever find typos, please don’t hesitate to let me know what/where they are. I strive for ZERO, so if there are any, I will update them right away! The position for the Communications Manager has been filled, but thank you for your interest anyway. I appreciate it.
