Thank you, Michelle! I am so glad this is helpful for you. At first, I really thought what I had was too old BUT after a bit of time the surprise saved me from a trip to the supermarket. It's simple to do, and worth the testing time so the bread baking is a success.

Oh my gosh, William, thank you for such a wonderful comment. I am so pleased to hear you trusted me and it all worked out for you... I do test and retest everything that ends up on Here We Are, whether written, video, or podcast advice. You have truly made my day! And yes, there are many more videos on the way. Best, Luci

I thought of things like, "who's your buddy," "your adventure gal," "dial up trouble," and "go-to friend," (which has a whole other meaning than the one I wanted!). Then it hit me, "Who you gonna' call" when that crazy, adventurous, questionable... Continue reading

Thank you! I totally agree about the importance of color in a room. Plus, that jar (of the color you select) is great to keep for touch ups.
