  • This recipe is better than it looks on paper! I probably used a lot more balsamic vinegar than the recipe called for because I did not want to calculate 0.17 tablespoons so I just dumped some in. The extra did not hurt and in fact probably gave it more flavor. This is worth doing again. - 6/21/10
