"I really like this recipe...the herbs really give it a lot of flavor. I wouldn't say its a good recipe for kids though as mine are picky about "spices" in their food. But it would be great for a potluck or picnic or brunch."

"This was the worst thing I've ever tasted. Making this wasted my tme AND money. I hope none of you don't believe me and make it anyway. Not only did my children hate it, my visitor did too.

It's a 40.00 dollar bill I deserve back!!!"
