Hi Deborah! Thanks for the comment and advise! I always use starch when pressing shirts and some other clothing but I never use it on quilts! Would kind of defeat the purpose of having a nice soft Quilt to wrap up in!! Good to know about cornstarch attracting moths! Makes total sense to me! Thanks so much! xo, Nan Sent from my iPad

Thanks for reading! xo, Nan
Hi Kathy! Yes, the restaurant is open until late October of this year - still time to eat everything before you make it! Frankie said his son and daughter-in-law are going to run a food truck, selling creative and fancy nachos, called Nacho Yommas and theyll start that in the fall while Frankie plans to offer cooking classes - which I hope he does! Let me know what you think about the cookbook when it arrives - I made his Lemon Semifreddo yesterday - light, refreshing, creamy...we ate half of it in one sitting! Half!!! Today Im going to make his Panforte...so Ill have something to snack on while I continue to cook/bake my way through his book! xo, Nan
