    I thought the blending of the spices on this was perfect. You could taste a hint of everything without any one spice being overpowering. Thanks for sharing.  -  21 Mar 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I was worried it could end up kinda strange with all the different ingredients in it. It was not strange at all. The best thing I have made in a long time!  -  03 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
