My wife and I love watching Molly's show because she is so energetic, honestly appealing, and has such great recipes to share. It's wonderful to "share" her family with her, and see about life on the farm in Minnesota. I think a lot of people mostly equate Minnesota with cold and snow, not with farming !!!! Good luck Molly and keep up the great work.

I love your show. You are so comfortable in the kitchen. I like that you show us how to cook foods that we will eat and that you cook foods from scratch. All of your recipes look delicious and they are foods that I would cook at home. Keep your program going. Love your family ❤️

Dear Molly, Just discovered you and your show. Love to see your work and developing Recipes. I am going to attempt your Pastrami sandwich….made my mouth water while watching the process but while searching for pink pickling salt I ran into a problem… hitch was that pink pickling salt could cause illness and worse because of an additive that is toxic…..sooooo I would Like to use Kosher salt for the curing process. Please do not stop your great shows J
