"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."

"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."
