These do actually look good.

The problem I have, most people don't have these ingredients in their cupboard(s).

These are specifically for gluten free people only, unless you feel like investing a fair amount on money for these specialized ingredients(3 different types of flour to start with).

Say what you will about specific breeds, but random-bred "alley cats" make the best pets!

So wonderful, absolutely lovely, thanks so much, just what I needed

I never met a Siamese that wasn't nasty and aggressive, which makes me question the rest of the list…
