HI NANCY; You are so very right & explain it so well !!!!!!!!!!!!!! question:
Hi Heather - welcome to VBB. Mary Jo answered your question just fine but I'm going to add a bit. When a recipe says "divided" it means you'll use part of an ingredient in one section of a recipe and part in another. For example - if the recipe calls for 2 cups of chocolate morsels, divided,... just read on in the recipe to see what amount they want you to use where. It will say something like, "melt 1 1/2 cups of morsels and add to batter". Then it will ask you to use the remaining 1/2 cup morsels on the top of the batter. Did we make any sense?
