    I made Chicken Makhani over the weekend and naan bread. It's my favorite Indian dish but I had never tried making it before. I didn't realize it's not really unhealthy!

    Did they ever redo the stringing video? I remember taking the GIA Pearls course and the Stringing and Knotting course years ago. The instructor was using tweezers, if I remember right.
