COMPLETE FAILURE. I used a different recipe and it so did not work. So next time I might use Martha's recipe again and adjust some things but for now, I'm over it. I'm not a big sweet-toothed gal anyway.
In other news: I live in a development called "Cottage Creek" and for the first time ever I can actually see the creek itself from my window due to rapid snow melt. That same creek runs though campus and apparently lot's of campus is flooded. I really despise winter.
