Considering my culinary talent, the name of my cookbook would be "Call The Coroner".

But if I were to write a cookbook, I would name it "Do It Your Way" (cue Frank Sinatra) and it would be recipes with different variations so you could adjust the outcome to your particular tastes or needs. Kind of like those books for children that had different endings.
Love this!

I can understand your grief. People hate thieves for good reasons.

Am glad you have regained some of what you lost.
