MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 5, 2010

With it's easy 10 minute set-up I was able to whip up a bunch in just 13 minutes. But, even though they were fast and easy to make, they weren't the best, while they weren't horrible either. I recommend for someone who doesn't have alot of time to fix something and wants an okay meal.
