MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 16, 2014

This recipe is definitely an example of "the sum is better than it's parts". I make my coffee very strong and felt like that was overpowering the other flavors, so I added a bit more ketchup. It's a super simple recipe with everyday common ingredients. It's a keeper!
