**Responding that a recipe is not modifiable is not a sufficient answer and you will not receive full credit. Try your best to answer the questions regarding modifications of your recipe. If you feel that your recipe cannot be modified, I strongly suggest that you use an alternate recipe that is modifiable to complete the assignment.
