    Very good. Simple and easy. I left off the pepper for the little ones and added it later and only added 1/2 salt (to add later)

    Best recipe site I have come across. As a retired nurse and now family caregiver, I appreciate the simplicity and ease of all recipes thus far. Have recommended this site to my grown daughters–perfect for busy working moms. Also, a low sodium diet is required by husband now and this is easily adapted to your recipes. You are obviously a registered dietitian and know your subject. Thank you!
