THIS IS AMAZING!!! I made it exactly as stated with the exception of using heavy whipping cream in place of the milk. It was subtle but very flavorful. Pure delight. I will be making this again soon!! Read More

I gave a three star because I did not want the sweetness of brown sugar; added some garlic salt smoked paprika and used sour cream instead of milk. I really like the result. The combination produces a mild sweetness. Read More

This was good but made exactly as described it's a tad bland. I will likely try it again with double the spices. Read More
