Reviewer: linda from bradenton fl
I think there must have been a misprint on the amount of baking soda to use, it calls for 1/2 cup which I used , and ruin about 20 dollars worth of product, I thought I was eating baking soda gross, please correct this recipe, so no one else spends the time or money I did
