MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 8, 2013 Edited Feb. 13, 2014

This recipe is delicious! My only complaint is that it doesn't make a lot once it's cooked. If you wanted to serve it at a nice dinner, you'd have to double or triple it, making it very expensive to buy all the ingredients. Also, if you don't have heavy whipping cream on hand, half-and-half works fine. ~ Theresa

This was pretty tasty, but mine didn't turn out as creamy looking as the picture. Definitely worth a try!
