    I love TIU and I promise I am not trying to be a Debbie Downer. But this is the 3rd recipe I’ve made with discrepancies between the ingredients and the instructions. Last night I made the chocolate coconut cookies and it listed Perfect Fit in the ingredients but was forgotten in the instructions. I had to guess on when to add it. :( Now I made this minestrone soup and went down the ingredient list and wrote down everything I needed and went to the store and got it. Got home, go to make it, and the 2nd sentence says “add onion, celery, and salt…”. Celery?? Did I miss something? Nope, it’s not in the ingredients. Nooooo, not again! :( I really do love this site and I love K&K, I’m sorry I’m just bummed out that this is the 3rd recipe in a week with these kind of discrepancies that I’ve tried to make. I understand you girls are very busy. Maybe you can have someone else proof-read the recipes before they’re posted? Thanks <3
