Jessica, a reader and real-life recipe user, wrote in to say some really nice, blog-lovey things:
I once wrote you to inquire about your brown sugar measuring methods, and you graciously (and promptly!) replied, and my baking attempts have been the better for it.
I'm writing you now to thank you for sharing your efforts. You're doing something wonderful, something that brings lots of people at least a minute or two of warm, chewy, tasty happiness. And that is a Great Thing.
Thanks so much, Jessica. Your email made my day...no...my month!
