"This was my first experience with both eating and making grits. They were very good and reminded me of polenta...but better. I will definitely be trying other grits recipes."

"This was so yummy! I did not add the extra 2/3 C butter (my nutritionist side wouldn't let me!) but everything else about it was fabulous. The whole family liked it."
