“I made these for dinner tonight. These are "wow"! They're pure vegetarian, quick n' easy, picnic food, breakfast delights, you can also enjoy these for lunch/dinner/as a snack item. I call these "ALL PURPOSE THEPLAS"! I tried these tonight, honestly speaking, for the FIRST time, but, these are so darned good, I can tell you now only that I'm going to have to make more tomorrow. OO”
