"I so agree with thomsmom about nitpickers rating recipe. If you make the recipe and don't like it then rated it as such but please stop harping on the ingredients and contents. Adjust the recipe to meet your diet requirements."

"Great dish! Sorry that the food nitpickers can't understand that most people are NOT diabetic, or pre-diabetic . It would be better if they, instead, suggested how to make it diabetic friendly."

"Berries of any kind of are favorite fruit and this was quite good. The topping is a nice touch to the flavor combination. And something about using the brown sugar and almond extract was flavorful"
