I thought I read they are working on it. It sure is taking a long time. I'm getting very disappointed. Swapped recipes was one of my favorites.

Speaking of swapping recipes ~ I have a co-worker that is very inexperienced in the kitchen and really wants to learn to cook. When we have pot lucks or just share lunches she always asks me for the recipe. Because so many of my own recipes are the results of trial and error experiments I find it difficult to pass the recipes on to her.  Oh, did I mention she is Chinese and though she speaks English she doesn't always understand what I'm telling her?  Any advice on passing on recipes from a "fly by the seat of her pants" cook to an "eager to learn but not quite ready" cook?  Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Mary K.D, Google has a translation site. You can type your recipe in english and have it translated  to Chinese. Print it out and give her both copies of any recipes. Also any instructions such as saute, braise, marinate, etc. that you feel she might not understand.

Thank you Wa-Ha, I talked to her this afternoon and we decided that I'm going to give her some cooking lessons.  Bless her heart, she really wants to learn but how do you teach someone kitchen common sense?  I learned by watching my Mother and Grandmothers.  I'm hoping that she'll learn something from me.  (She's agreed to teach me some of her own family recipes as a trade off).  Her husband is from Indonesia and I am looking forward to spending the time with both of them.

Mary, sounds like you both will be winners with that arrangement. I love all types of foods and like to try them. Hubby is pure, east Texas, country. His favorite meal is fried chicken, pintos w/salt meat floating in them, mashed potatos w/lots of butter, cream and topped with gravy, cornbread and hot peppers!! Of course, he also loads it all down with a ton of salt that I stopped adding to anything I cook because of his addiction to it. No sense saying he needs to go ez on it either. I get a lecture of how it is his life and he will eat it.
