    I think the size of chicken breasts has changed dramatically since Julia Child’s day, which could account for some of her shorter cook time.

    I love your recipes, they help so much to have lots of food options. But, why isn’t there some sort of print option? I have made a notebook to hold all my information and that would help so much. Thanks.
