  1. Oh, oh, oh, Dinie! No, not ounces. I meant cups and teaspoons and/or tablespoons. But it’s okay. Unless, of course, others, like me, want to try out your recipe but require the customary units.

    As for the email address… It’s on the SJC and the Messages pages on the church blog. See the little square with the blue flowers? Click and you’re at my other blog. Then, click on the oleander there; and… presto… you’re back to my personal blog.


    1. Ah, ok….Then in that case for pastry for example, I would say around 2 cups…Be careful, with Harina Pan, as this can swell to very large proportions…You may end up with more than you need…I will send you the email address now..


  2. Dinie, Dinie, Dinie! This sounds delectimundo! Yep. My word.

    Any chance on changing the units to customary rather than just using metric for those of us who are still on the antiquated system in the states?


    1. Hey, kiddo. I’ve had you and your mom on my mind a lot, so I left written petitions for you both at St. Mary’s Church two weekends ago… placed in the basket that was in front of the altar at all of the Masses. Not only that, I have two “somethings” I’d like to send you. Could you email me, please, so I can get your address? Thanks!

      Here’s wishing you a bee-U-tee-full day!


    2. I forgot to reply to the whole metric Vs Pounds and Ounces thing…In England, we no longer count things in Pounds and Ounces…I will try and look into it…There are some things that I know..For example, 1kg translates to 600-700 grams…Like I said I will try and look into this…


  3. Awesome blog. I would love for you to check out my new site. I think that you would find it appealing. Check out pizzaoven.com 🙂 I will be testing out reciepies tonight too. They all look so good I am not sure which one to pick!
