"This recipe will be a fav at our house!! Just got done making it and waiting on the rice for my beef tip and gravy dish to finish and my kids are wanting samples and more. Mom we don't want to wait for supper. My kids are 12, 9, 4 and 20 months. Even the baby LOVES it. For anyone making a recipe pls follow directions and measurements. Use measuring cups and spoons. You will be surprised how it can affect a recipe if you don't. This recipe is divine."

"I loved the asparagus fresh out of the oven without the sauce. We didn't care for the mustard sauce. It wasn't a pleasant flavor. I would not make again!"
