  1. Thanks so much for the great sounding recipe. What would be great is if there was a print icon to make the printing process quick and easy. I very much appreciate your site!!

    • I’m going to give this recipe a try this afternoon. It looks good. I’ve enjoyed many of the recipes posted here. A little curious why the shift from cup measurements to ounces for the liquid. It’s much easier to understand 8 cups than 64 ounces.
