  1. Dave – I’ve been watching your You Tube cooking videos for years, and have learned so much from you I wanted to take the time to thank you. About 5 years ago I started cooking for my family more than just BBQ and turkey for the holidays. My first goal was to make asian dishes my highly food allergic kids could eat, and because your recipes have mostly safe (for us) ingredients I’ve been able to learn how to tweek things if needed to make it work for us. I now have at least 15 go to Asian dishes thanks to you ! Not to mention the countless other things I make for them on a regular basis. And my girls thank you as well, as asian food is by far their favorite ! Food limitations due to allergies or food sensitivities does not have to affect making delicious whole food recipes at all. Your videos have changed our cooking lives, so my thanks to you again.

  2. Pretty disappointed that you know longer publish your new youtube recipes on this website. I find them helpful as a novice home cook. Love your videos and recipes from the past though.

  3. Hi Dave,
    Do you have a “keyword” search option on your website?

    Your recipes are a staple in our home cooking. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful cooking with us!

    1. Hi Toni. Thanks for the question. Yes, there is a “search recipe here” on the home page just to the right of the first big picture. I think it’s on every page too. I will double check on that. Thanks for making our recipes and the feedback. Keep cooking Toni.

  4. Melt in your mouth,Spice Cake!???I can almost smell it too!??Im new to your channel,I just subscribed.I can’t wait to make it for my family & friends! That spice cake was made With Luv. Thank you,I live in Russellville,Arkansas .USA

    1. Hi Mary. Thanks so much. Yes, the spice cake is really good. I’ll have to make it again myself. I’m sure your family and friends will enjoy it. Welcome to the channel and to the website. Hope you make many recipes. Love Arkansas. I have to visit again as soon as this pandemic settles down. Keep us posted, Mary.

  5. My message is for Dave to ask you to confirm your quantities as per the lemon cookie video. Since last year when i discovered your website – though i have produced lemon cookies from following your reccipe they are never look like yours.
    Today I was just about to start to make cookies when i notice a discrepancy in your quantities – you say 1& half cups flour 180g & 1 cup sugar 200g.

    I would appreciate you confirm . Thank you Elizabeth Nicholls

    1. Hi Elizabeth. Sorry for the late reply. So glad you are making and enjoying the cookies. I will change and fix the discrepancy. I should be 1 cup of sugar. 1 1/2 will be a bit on the sweet side. That might account for a few people saying they were too sweet. In therms of not looking like ours, I have a couple of questions. Are they two soft or hard or are they flat?

      1. I have found the mixture(using the quantities on YouTube recipe) too wet to roll easily; do I correct this by increasing the flour quantity? They also bake flat, no rise at all! Your advice please.
