MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 8, 2011

I thought these were a bit too lemony. If I were to make them again I would reduce the amount of lemon juice. I personally would prefer just a hint of lemon instead of having it as the dominant flavor, as seemed to be the case here. I also didn't have any chives so I substituted 1 tbsp dried oregano for them. Very easy to make though!
