    I loved it - brought back childhood memories. I was looking for a recipe that replicated the one I remembered, and this is it! - 8/3/09

    I didn't care for this; suppose it's the texture. - 4/16/07

    Ooh! I thought this was something that my mom's friend just made up, but we have it every thanksgiving (minus the celery) and it is very tasty! It looks absolutely awful, bright green with chunky cottage cheese bits, but I really like the flavor! - 4/15/07
