MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2013

They were good, it is a keeper. The family asked for me to make them twice since the first time. So I take it they liked it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2012

Very light but tasty. If I change this recipe it might be to add Mandarin Oranges and use the juices as a partial substitute for the o.j.
