"Very tasty, I had only one issue I diced the potatoes and cooked as directed but some were still undone. Would probably cook them separately and then add them to the rest of the ingredients."

"Claylady, if you did not make the recipe, why give a review at all? It is just your opinion that the recipe has too many ingredients, and who cares?"
