OMG! Sorry about the spam. IFTT and WordPress were having a post-off. I think we're good now... I have no idea what happened but I'm hoping it's fixed. Please let me know if you keep getting 100s of emails.
I've gone back-and-forth with this a lot over the years, but I think that with my vision for this website, I decided it would be best if my recipes were on a separate site. For this reason, I have moved them back over to my old recipe site - RDRecipes.wordpress.com.

Considering that food and nutrition are vital to good health and productive employees our services should be covered by health plans.
