Reviews for Portobello Waffles with Balsamic Syrup
"It sounds wonderful, I intend to give it a try.It seems to me that kmkasprzak and wombatt need to take lessons in English and spelling before criticizing others. Such awful grammar and spelling shouldn't even get you out of the 3rd grade. I think you should take your own advise."
"Wow! Savory and sweet and completely satisfying. Not your usual stuicky sweet breakfast fare. Will serve this for a baby shower brunch next month."
"SOUNDS GREAT!! I haven't tried it but intend to! I know how pleasing the combination of salty and sweet, savory and sweet can be. Can't wait to try it!!!"
"If you haven't tried the recipe why do you rate it so negative. Also if you don't like some of the ingrediants the same goes. Maybe others are more adventurest than you."
"Rest assured, I could never rate this because it would never see the light of day in my house. Mushrooms are bad enough, but vinegar syrup??? Ain't gonna happen."
