  • “This recipe was great… I thought I had flour and soon realized that I did not. But I substituted the flour with pancake mix and it turned out great!”

  • “Hot dang!!This is the one I been lookin fer…It hits just the right note for my Southern palate..The thick crust is a winner, and that light hint of garlic is delicious.May add a tad of chili powder to next batch just for grins, but the original is the best I’ve tasted..Thanks Audra!”
