"I found the receipe a little "oily". I reduced oil by 1/3 and I roasted to noodles and nuts in a frying pan until light brown. Tasty and quick to make."

"I've only made this twice, and the first time was a success! I went to make it this morning for a family reunion, and it was a disaster. For some reason, the oil and seasoning mix would not blend (it was lumpy and sat on the surface) and I believe I burned it. The only difference is I went from an electric stove, to gas. It will be a while before I try to make this again. Big disappointment."

"This has become our pitch-in favorite! Any flavor of ramen noodle seasoning works. I always make extra so I have some to take to work for lunch the next day. So simple and easy. I love making this stuff."
