Re: [orthodox-synod] Rosca de Reyes - Three Kings Bread, from México
- Dear Stephen,
Sorry to tell you, but your recipies are coming out unusable, since you are
using special characters for 1/2 and 1/3 and 1/4--which do not format
correctly in most email programs.
You really need to write them out: 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4, etc.
Otherwise, great stuff--except it makes our mouths water during Lent.
