    Hi Robyn, I just saw Marlys post and came right over. I can’t tell you how many times I could have used this recipe. Thanks so much for sharing. I’ll definitely add it to my sugar container for emergencies.

    This is great. I’ve never even thought of making my own brown sugar but it makes sense. This is great to have for emergencies (yes you can have brown sugar emergencies :) ) Thanks for sharing on Great Idea Thursdays 38 you have been featured.

    I had no idea you could make brown sugar. Good to know in case I run out of it when it’s baking time. Hmmm…I guess that means I need to buy some molasses.

    Pinning to my boards!

    Found you from Creatively Unleashed party.
