    hello Mr. Ed, are you based here in Pinas, tanong ko lang kung saan pwedeng mabili ang “cream of tartar”. Meron ho ba kayong options if this cream of tartar is not available.

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find almost all
    of your post’s to be exactly what I’m looking for.
    Does one offer guest writers to write content for yourself?
    I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a lot of the subjects you write concerning here.
    Again, awesome web site!

    Hi. On your ingredients section, you need 1/2 melted butter. But in your instructions, you asked to put 1/4 cup. Which is the correct amount?
