    Hi Sanaa,
    I was told that you have a stew recipe for the crock pot that is using wheat berries and cooked the “wash day” and I cannot find it listed on your website. Can you email it to me? I know I spoke with you about it at a cooking class and am now just getting around to this email. I am signed up for the Oct 25th class and looking forward to seeing you again. We were gone on a 20 day Mediteranean cruise in August and I sure enjoyed the authentic food. Thanks Betty Meyer

    certainly like your web-site but you need to take a look at the spelling on several of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I’ll certainly come back again.
