I could find nothing about the author. I suspect it is a fictitious name created by the Carnation Milk company for this book of recipes.

Wow. this one is tempting to get involved in. I just landed on a recipe for "Shrimp Wiggle" which made me kinda glad I'm fasting! :)

Hello, Larry.

You've been most convincing in this section... I'm about to add Carnation Milk to my shopping list! :lol:

I just have one PL note on this section. It is more of a doubt, really: at the end of the intro I hear "...by Mary Blake."

According to the instructions in the template, the intro should finish with the author's name followed by the name of the section. That is, it would be "...by Mary Blake. The Delight of the New in Cookery."

Other than that, everything's great. :D

Yeah, Carnation Milk used to be a staple around our house, but I don't see it much anymore. Maybe this book will help revive some interest. :lol:

I should have alerted you to the different format for this section. Because I wanted to read those little bits of introduction, the quotation, etc. I read that first before the Section Title. It's okay as it is. But thanks so much for noticing this!

We should fill out with readers for the rest of the sections pretty soon.
I've got more of these in the pipeline unless interest wanes.

Thanks again for all your help. :D
