      I have to say wammytk, you have some wonderful recipes. I made your lemon meringue pie yesterday and it's delightful. It satisfied my need for something sweet.

      I also wanted to mention that Deland Bakeries out of Deland, FLA have this wonderful Yeast free Millet & Rice bread. It is so amazing! When you are on a candida diet it really hits the spot.
