  • Thank you, appreciate!

    Strange problem with the notation, this is suppose to happen only when you rate the same recipe twice in less than 5 minutes... Anyway, don't worry, if you have time try again in a few minutes.

  • I love your site. Great recipes and tips.

    I tried giving you 5 stars on this recipe but a new page loaded and had a message that "Notation impossible...". I have no idea what that is.

    Anyway, thank you for all the hard work you put into this website.
