    I was searching for Marie’s Marinade I have not bee able to find the grocery stores anymore. It was olive oil and a lot of herbs. Somehow came across this website, a recipe for kale. would love to hear the radio shows. DO I have to listen at home in front of the computer or is there a station I can listen to in the car while driving to and from work. Is there any show on TV? I g;guess I need to click on some of these things here and I’ll find out. But am excited to learn everything she is teaching. What a great surprise.
