    omg soooo much lemony goodness! I followed the recipee and the lemon flavor is very strong (which I loved) ... so if you like things a little less lemony skip the wine as it increases the intensity of the lemon. also fresh thyme was not an option so I used I only used dried ... tasted great - 9/11/09
