"I find it odd that the ratings gave great reviews when I have such a problem. My mix is so dry it won't stick together. I checked the recipe repeatedly but I put in the correct ingredients. Did anyone else have this problem? What did you do about it if so? I am an experienced Taste of Home cook and never had any problems with the recipes before. Thanks I am not sure how this works but if anyone has a solution I would appreciate knowing about it. [email protected]"
