Wasn't a fan of the tomatoes and too many apricots.

MY REVIEW

Something about the mix up of flavors was off. I don't think I would make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 27, 2010

it was alright - but probably won't make it again. i doubled recipe - instead of 4 cups broccoli, i included asparagus and sliced carrots with the broccoli. just thought it was kinda blah, could use more flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 19, 2010

Loved this recipe, I'll be making this many times over. It was sweet and salty and had a kick. Although, I couldn't tell my family it had apricot jelly in it or they would have nixed the whole dinner, ha.
