“I adopted this recipe in after a previous member left the site. I haven't had a chance to prepare it, but this is what the previous owner had to say: "Hmmmm, this is a recipe I adopted -- I looked it over and made some major corrections (it called for a cup of dijon mustard - Oh my!) but I still have yet to make it myself. I will update as soon as I have the chance to get to it...Caveat Emptor!"”
