I’m not sure why, but e-mail seems to have this strange hold over me. Every time I see that little envelope pop up in the bottom, right-hand corner of my screen, it’s all I can do not to squeal with delight! While I realize this qualifies me for the category of Extreme Nerd, I can’t help it. I am what I am.

Needless to say I was very excited when a certain e-mail, from Dave at KitchenSavvy, arrived in my in-box.

Allow me to explain. A few days ago, frustrated by my unsuccessful attempts to locate a certain ingredient, I decided to take a chance and e-mail Dave. I proceeded to ask Dave why I could not locate Greek yogurt anywhere in the fair city in which I live. Not only that, I also asked Dave if he could explain what exactly made Greek yogurt different from other types of yogurt.

Not only did Dave answer my question, he even suggested a way that I could make a very reliable substitute for Greek yogurt. You can read Dave’s very thorough and helpful reply here.

Dave, in Italian we say, "Mille grazie!" A thousand thanks!
