This is Kristy, Michele's step-sister in Minnesota. Michele asked me to pop on here and let you know that she ended up back in the Emergency Room today for her ongoing health issues. She's in a lot of pain and pretty drugged up right now and unfortunately won't be able to make her trip to Chicago this weekend. She also does not know when she will be able to get back on the computer to update her blog and participate in all the wonderful food carnivals. So please just keep Michele in your thoughts and prayers and let's all hope that she's feeling well enough soon to get back on here and share her wonderful recipes and photos with us!
