  1. Ok, your conversion chart doesn’t tell me what a knob of butter is. LOL! SO, I just guessed and put the amount of butter I wanted. HA! This was still absolutely delicious!! My guys are so happy that I am trying new things in the kitchen! I wouldn’t be able to if it weren’t for easy to follow instructions like your recipe.
