this looks so do able for my fam! I might have to try it. I think you need to add a star system or something... for how hard a recipe is! I am a scaredy cat sometimes with recipes! I am trying so hard to get better!

hey Btw...I am a stalker according to your side bar counter! I hate that it shows how many times I show up! for instance I KEPT coming back to check the recipe for the brownie thing... Finally I printed it out cuz Pasadena was in the side bar like 7 times! akkk

I am not a stalker, JUST have a really bad memory!

I didn't find it to be hard at all. I am a little afraid of "frying" thing. For example, I have never made fried chicken, maybe I should try but im terrified it won't get done.... okay but anyways, this was easy peasy.

For the record i find stalking to be the highest form of flattery!!! and i do the same to other people with recipe blogs.
