    I absolutely love this website but do have some questions regarding the recipe ingredients… it would be so much more helpful if recipes included not only where to get the ingredients, but also a little more background for us “newbies” such as where what is curd? Not clear whether it is cottage cheese or sour cream? Or something else?
    And it would be great if you could tell where to get unusual items like melon essence? thank you so much looking forward to more recipes!
    LOVE you!
