Thank you KatieNell!

I just wanted to post a big thank you to KatieNell for her superb organizational skills, and tireless diplomacy in the face of many complaints, in organizing the cookbook of the month threads for the past months.

I'm afraid it's often been a thankless task, and I know I have benefited significantly from her hard work.

  1. Yes, absolutely! Thanks very much for your patience, time and hard work, KatieNell. It's much appreciated.

    And thanks, too, to the home cooking board regulars. I appreciate the friendliness and the focused, spirited conversation. I am frequently inspired, and I've learned a lot. You're a great bunch!

      1. Oh, wow, you're welcome guys... just saw this! It was indeed much more difficult than I thought it would be, but still fun. I'm glad to be able to just relax now and enjoy the books! Note to those who go after me: develop *very* thick skin! :-) I couldn't have done it without the positive support of a tremendous amount of you- you know who you are! Thanks, right back at you!

        1. I'm not sure how I missed this thread earlier, but want to chime in with more thanks and gratitude for Katie Nell. I haven't been good about cooking along but have enjoyed reading along. You came up with a wonderful selection and variety of cookbooks and did a great job listening to folks. Not sure how you put up with the complaints, but thank you for putting in six months of volunteer work!

          1. Yes - thank you very much KatieNell - and thanks to Smokey for posting this in the first place as well!

              Another big thank you, Katie Nell. I have been cooking for a long time, but your wonderful work encouraged me to stretch myself this year and I have learned so much. My family and friends are grateful too! I'm glad you can return to being on the receiving end. I look forward to your posts.
