"My whole family like this dish. After reading a previous review I decided to add a few things...little soy sauce, fresh garlic, ginger, and onion powder. Yum! I also think it would be great spiced up with some jalapenos or red pepper flakes."

"I was really excited to make this recipe but it wasn't what I thought it would be. It was good just wasn't WOW!"

"This dish was excellent; I made it for my husband and he absolutely loved it. I did make a few alterations, though. With the peach/cornstarch mixture I added a dash of nutmeg and about a tsp or two of cinnamon. I also did not have any green onions on hand, but it turned out beautifully. The spices made such a difference in the flavor. I would make this dinner again."
