Hi Robert,
That’s a tough question – I know for sure that higher end grocery stores or kitchen stores do carry DOP or EVOO with the Toscana on the label or around the neck of the bottle. Check out this link form my website. Click here.
hope that helps.

Hi Denise,
Thanks for wanting to buy Lick the Spoon – but its been out of print for many years, the publisher went out of business…..you might have some luck on ebay…..

1 cup of sour cream – it must have been a popular read – I had so many emails about that missing ingredient and it was totally my fault!

Mairlyn,
I am a huge fan and use your recipes all the time. My husband loves the Chocolate Mousse dessert even after I told him it was made with Tofu! He was totally impressed. I made your Triple-Oat Cookies and now I have to double the recipe.

Thank you for being so inspiring!

Thanks Terry,
That made my day! Another tofu convert, even though it is sort of hidden in a sea of chocolate!

Hello Mairlyn,
I was just thinking about you today and was wondering when your new cookbook was going to hit the shelves. I was one of the helpers that joined you at your house the day of the food styling photo shoot for the cookbook. I was the girl with the red apron :). Well I am happy that I looked into the launch date, and even happier to see the time is coming soon. I am looking forward to seeing the final product, and I wish you all the best with your success.
