    Altered ingredient amounts. I loved this recipe as did everyone I made it for. I do think that the amount of ginger is an awful lot. I used less than 1/4 the amount and it was delicious.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe is excellent and very easy!!! I used half the ginger and would probably reduce the amount to about 2 tablespoons next time.  -  15 Sep 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I would give this 10 stars if I could. My husband couldn't stop talking about it, and my father kept giving me the "thumbs up" during dinner (a major compliment) I did take the advice of the other reviewers and added less ginger (2 tablespoons) and it was delicious. Thanks, Janice!!!  -  15 Sep 2008
