Thanks! I don't use wine glass markers but I think these would be great for stitch markers on knitting needles.

I too did the cleanse from the book "Clean" and found it has totally changed my eating habits for the better, I realized I have a sensitivity to foods that I did not know about and it make me feel more energetic. The recipes in the book were great and I enjoyed trying some new things.
Since coming off the cleanse I find that my palate has changed and I eat differently and enjoy my food more.

fresh squeezed is really worth it for baking and I can't imagine a gin and tonic without a fresh wedge of lime. I have tried the store bought stuff (for baking, would never allow it to pollute my G&t)and I just don't like the taste at all.

I have a three way digital timer so I can time more than one dish at a time, I rely on it heavily as I am apt to wander off while baking.

I always use Starbucks via, I did not realize there was a difference between this and espresso powder, I will have to try the espresso powder although it us hard to find here, and I really like the via, I do always use more than the recipe calls for but only because I really like coffee flavor. I have used it in 101cookbooks espresso banana muffins and they are always great.
