Message From Raw Chef Dan

I want to let you know I am still away for most if not all of August.
I will keep up with a few activities on the site but for the most part I need to not look at a computer for a while.

In the mean time please take advantage of the huge archive of goodies in the:

Tip Of The Week, Newsletters, Free Recipes Page, YouTube Videos Online Classes with Quest TV and My Blog

Thank you and stay tuned in June I have some really cool stuff happening.

Identify your strength and your weaknesses. Get to know them but do not focus on them. The true you lays between.

¼ cup fresh mint (loose)
¼ cup fresh cilantro (loose) 2 dates
