An    Explanation    of    this    Month's    Recipe    Collection.....

     As some of you may know, I have been undergoing some recent health
problems for which I am still waiting for a definitive diagnosis. This
is part of the reason why this month's collection of recipes is a little

     I am a subscriber to several of the RECIPE Mailing Lists available
on the 'Net and on one of these lists, Cooking For Fun (CFF), several
of the list members have stayed in contact with me during my time of
absence, offering their prayers and well wishes.

     I recently posted a collection of recipes to the CFF list, which
I titled my "ANGEL COLLECTION" in order to thank all of my "cyberangels"
from CFF. So for this month's recipe collection I am including an 
excerpt of some of the recipes that I posted to CFF.

     All of these recipes have either the title "ANGEL" in them or the
word "HEAVEN" --- after all angels do come from heaven right??
