I substituted 1tsp herbs de provence for the marjoram. Very tasty, everyone loved it.

Thought this was very good, though it needed some more spice. I'll be making this one again! Thanks!

I made this tonight exactly as written, but thought it was bland. If I make it again, I will definitely add something to give it more zip.
