    I was out of Cyanne Pepper so I used Cajun Seasoning. Talk about delish! This just made 18 almonds appealing. - 2/11/11

  • Bad
    I did not care for this recipe at all! I had to pitch it. It sounded great and was easy to make, but I think it may have been the cumin that didn't agree with me. - 12/25/07
