MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 27, 2008

I thought I posted something yesterday, but I don't see it, so I must have done something wrong. I'm trying to search for M&M bar/cookie recipes on the Taste of Home web site and don't know what to enter. Can someone help me or give me recipes? Thanks much! loonlover
