  • I'm sorry to say that I made this recipe and it was lacking flavor. I felt terrible that one one wanted seconds nor did they finish what they did take. My company does not belong on Spark People. - 6/30/16

  • Easy. I basically made 1/4 of the recipe and didn't have the time to keep it in the oven long and it was great! - 2/15/16
