MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2013

Eh. I liked that this recipe does not have a lot of fake ingredients in it, like cheese soup & velveeta, but it definitely lacks a nice creamy consistency. The taste is fine, but the texture is pretty weird.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 18, 2012

This was mushy, very gloppy, and had an unpleasant taste. It was inedible! I've never thrown away a dinner before, this was the first one.
