I sure am! I'm Suzi HomeMaker! Master of the Apron and stove! Lord over all measuring cups! Watch as I take Nothing and make it into Something!
Just as soon as one of you tells me how to know if the cream cheese is an eight ounce package or not. Does it say so in the box? Do I need a conversion chart before I go into the store? Halp!

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
