I'll do my best to get back with you quickly, as I love to hear from all varieties of readers. If you'd like to use one of my images in one of your own posts you may, but please give photo credits to me and link back to L&G. If you'd like to use more than one in a post, I'd appreciate it if you'd contact me first to ask (pretty sure I'll say yes). Also, if you want to adapt one of my recipes for your blog, I'm A) flattered and B) would love if you'd link back to my original post that inspired your version. Thanks a million!


  1. Hi! My family LOVED your apple cake. For me, it was a little sweet. Could I reduce the sugar without affecting the cake outcome? If so, what modifications do you suggest? Thank you!

  2. Rachel I’ve never met you but I think you have been a fly on my wall. I just read your 2018 piece on being single. You perfectly put the ache in my heart into words. I’m 57 years old... smart, good hearted, good looking...and still waiting. I’ve sought sol long and hard to understand and I just don’t. I’ve prayed for God to take away the need but he hasn’t. I’ve tried to let it go but I can’t. Sometimes it’s unbearable. I have a good life and a good career and I have abundant health, all for which I am grateful but the pain in my heart just won’t go away. But I wanted you to know that reading this touched me deeply. It helps to know I’m not the only one. There is so much more I could say but the main thing is that I wanted to say thank you...thank you for clicking “publish “.
