I HATE the security code routine that forces me to watch some crappy and unwanted advertisement just to submit a comment. Find another way to enforce security.

The story is OK. New salad ideas are always welcome. But, I hate the slide show type presentation. Too much clicking. Too little reading material on each page. I wish I could get a one or two page presentation, and maybe even one that I could print out easily for future reference.
