Just an FYI.....EVERY TIME I try to read about your cooking classes.....a SPAM pop-up appears about winning a new IPhone--it's a bad bad link -- so I always have to delete.

You may want to look into this.....

So....where are you located as I'm interested in your pasta making class....can't get information as what I described above prevents me from looking around!

DARN!! I I sure wish we lived nearby :-( I'd love being in your classes if only to see how you do things. I feel there is always room to learn. I always enjoy your posts and photos. Hope you're having a good winter season.

From The Italian Dish:

Cheryl: Sorry! I have no pop up ads on my site, so it's not me!

Marisa: Thanks and I wish you could come, too!

Just a note -- I am getting pop up ads on your site too. I got the iPhone one earlier today, and now I am getting another one.

From The Italian Dish:

Willow: Whaaat?!? I hate pop-up ads and have never approved them for my site! I wouldn't do that to you guys! I'm going to have to get to the bottom of this! Thanks for letting me know.
