+Wow! Thanks SO much Elayne!  My family inhaled the granola! They loved it so can't wait to try to make it myself! If it turns out, thinking I might make a few jars for gifts to give out :) might even take a crack at the napkins as gifts doe my family!  You are truly wonderful and I'm so grateful you're in my life!

+Thank you  …for being brave and vulnerable and making something great for so many in such a simple, classy and inclusive way! Take a minute to be very proud of  how many hearts you helped touch tonight.  

+My mom was gone and I surprised my family by making them dinner and dessert from your cookbook ‘ALL BY MYSELF’ and I loved what I made them”! 

+ Thinking of you as I am cooking from your cookbook. Last night it was the clam linguine dish and tonight it is taco salad. Thank you for putting together such a beautiful book!

+You are a true inspiration. I don't know if I've ever met a kinder, more sincere soul than you. 

+I've always thought of myself as a terrible cook.  Your cookbook and blog have helped me in every way become confident in my skills and you have shown me that if I practice at anything, I will get better.

+Wonderful evening! I'm so grateful that you and your bright spirit came into my life at just the right time, even for just a moment. Your endearing light and love are infectious. 

+What you do is such a wonderful gift. The way you share your soul and spread your light encourages me to do the same. Thank you!

+ Wanted to say a huge thank you for putting on your share class and all the goodies!!  I loved everything about it, gold thread and all - it amazes me how much thought and attention you must have put into it to give us all such a hands on experience.  Loved it!! And the family has been enjoying all the goodies you sent home with me - time to put my new skills to the test as we've pretty much polished it all off (someone was generous enough to save me a spoonful of your granola)!  =)  Sure appreciate all the time and effort you put into hosting the class, it was a welcome reprieve from all the craziness.  I especially enjoyed the great company!  You always go above and beyond to make us all feel special.  Thanks again!!!

+ Loved your class Elayne Prechtel! I made the granola and breakfast pizza for Thanksgiving morning, bread for Thanksgiving meal and several large bottles of vanilla aging in my cupboard! I loved the class, the ladies and inspiration. Thanks Elayne for sharing with us!

+Some moments offer reminders that you know you are right where you are meant to be. A delicious dinner & 'Super Soul' finale summer evening sharing & connecting with lovely women. My silver bracelet took on renewed meaning with the wonderful surprise from Elayne Prechtel! #shebelievedshecouldsoshedid #beyou

+Simply stunning Elayne Prechtel, you are one of a kind! I love watching you dream and your dreams coming true...THANK YOU for a beautiful night of LIFE, LOVE & FOOD! (oh and a LOT of LAUGHTER!). xoxo

+Just here to say I think you are a very talented and amazing lady. Proud to call you my friend.

+ I just had to share with you something that happened last night. Our husbands are out of town so I had another teacher over for dinner and I made your salmon recipe. It was delicious.  The funny thing is that she also walked in and had decided at the last minute to make your peach cobbler. Thank you for inspiring our meal together last night.

+"A simple but profound message from my sweet friend, Elayne. I met Elayne just a few months ago in yoga. She's on my list of people I will never forget and who make me want to be a better person.
