No good. Take too long to fix. Placed an order on 12-03-22 and still no order. Talked to customer service and they said it was still in the warehouse. No Christmas gift for us.

These recipes look great, especially the Gingerbread Muffins. I assume I can replace the sorghum with molasses? (I don’t even know if I can get sorghum here!!) Thanks!!!
