""I wish people would not comment and rate a recipe before they even try it. It brings down the ratings needlessly. Use your heads." Common sense dictates that we make the recipe and decide how good it is... lack of common sense is very common."

"Do you have to use ground pork? If I ask the butcher for group pork, what do I specifically ask for? Sounds great."
