I just found the tweet button! Sorry for the mis post on my part.

Thanks for the recipe Ms. Stevens. Can I substitute anything for parsley? I can't always find it, and think I might be allergic.

Thanks

Celery tops would be similar in taste to parsley, but you can make the recipe without parsley. It will still taste good.
