I would love to take credit for this beauty, but I didn’t create it. Bakerita created it. I’ve included the link to her at the end of the recipe. Thanks but please give the proper credit 🙂

Yes, I will do so. When I hit the reblog button it doesn’t give me ability to tell that in the blog post, only in the end as a comment.

Okay. I’m still learning the technical details to blogging 🙂 If it reblogs what I orignally blogged the link is on there to Bakerita.

Yes it is on there and I added Bakerita as a keyword tag.
