    Was wondering if you have a recipe for making molasses didn’t like the taste on store bought.

  7. It makes like a cheesy sauce. You will just have to try it and see. You can drain it if you want to.

    I fixed this dish for my hubby who just got out of the hospital a week ago figuring it was comfort food plus! (I used turkey sausage, medium shells, and a steam bag of veggies) He LOVED it and said I could fix it every week . Served it with your Corn Fritters and they were a BIG HIT as well, even with my 6 yr old granddaughter who promptly asked for the recipe to take home to her mama! Thank you so much.5 stars

  9. I made this tonight for my family and it was delicious, easy and everybody was happy!5 stars
