Friday Roundup #11 and an Interview

At Here in Highland Park, Leora interviewed me about setting up and running CookingManager.Com. Thanks to Leora for her thoughtful questions and to all those who left lovely comments. Baila‘s is my favorite:

Hannah’s new website is for anyone who ever stands in a kitchen. (Meaning you don’t even have to cook to gain something from it)

And Leora said:

I hope you enjoy the interview.
