"Very good! Thank you for sharing. If you and your husband don't like someone's recipie it's very simple for you. Don't prepare it again. You don't have to return to publicly announce you didnt like it as it "wasn't special". I didn't read anywhere alluding to it being special."

"Neither my husband nor I cared a lot for this. It had a mild flavor that neither of us thought was anything special. I won't be making it again."

"Who would think that a recipe that's this quick and easy would be so rich tasting. I'll definitely make this again, and next time I'll chop my imitation crab meat much more finely."

"This was so easy and quick to prepare and was delicious, which is a home run in my book! I added a little Old Bay Seasoning to it as well for a little extra flavor."

"This was a quick and easy recipe. I used skim milk because that's what we always have in the house and it was still good with a nice creamy consistency."
