MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 17, 2015

"this recipe was very easy and looks good. I only changed one thing and that was just using half the salt which happens to be way too much also. you should add salt last, the cheese can have lots of salt and the butter too. It is ruined and will go in the trash and I hate wasting food. sad sad"
