    Thanks for putting this class on. I really enjoyed the topics and the people there. The information presented opened my eyes up to a lot of things. I have to say that I recently bought some chicken style seitan from Whole Foods thinking it would taste like the one that Barb shared with us during her demo. Yeah, I was wrong. Her version tastes way better. Guess I'll have to make my own using her recipe.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
