Post-Making Suggestions:

I know this recipe sounds terrible because there are no measurements, but I didn’t use any measurements, and I guess this is how you learn when you learn from your mother! And honestly, this method is so much easier and more common senses…kinda starting to like it. As long as we can maintain consistency!
