Sounds tough. The most rewarding things are sometimes the most difficult. I hope that there will be a resolution, and I also hope that you can enjoy the process as much as possible. Wouldn't life be boring without challenges?

Thank you. I do appreciate challenges. But only so many at once! Maybe the key to this one is to make sure I have an outside life...

All this and it’s easy to loose sight of what this recipe will create in the end. It can’t be just a recipe for bread because, of course, scientists don’t do this work just for the money. Perhaps it’s a dessert recipe, but without the joy of family and friends it may never be sweet enough. Who knows…throw in something unusual like peppermint to see if it changes the flavor. :-)
