Notes

this is one of my favorite recipies.One of the first i learned to make as a little girl..one time i was having the hardest time learning to add fractions.my grandmother simply pulled out this recipie and asked me to help her double it.not only did i finaly figure out how to add fractions but i had a wonderful loaf of bread to bring home with me.
