Granted I'm no food critic, so anyways enjoy it if you want to, but what I hate the most is when recipes don't say serving sizes in terms of weight. So that's what I plan on doing for any recipes added. I've taken a recipe that I have found and

If you want to reduce the calories, simply reduce the serving size. But this serving size works for my husband and I. Keep in mind that the rice and vegetable isn't including in the nutritional information, so that needs to be added depending on your preference of serving size and actual product/recipe of those items.


Please don't rate or comment on this recipe unless you have actually made it.

  • This was easy and my husband quite enjoyed it. I didn't know what type of vinegar to use, so I used cider vinegar. - 5/29/11
