    I didn't like it. So far I've tried three of these recipe makers and have not been impressed.

    Easy to make. Everyone loved it & they even went back for seconds which is not the norm here. Have a large family so I used 2 boxes and I added petite carrots to the recipe (8oz.)The only thing I hear now from them is "When are you making it again Dad?" The wife not only enjoyed it but was happy she did not have to cook. lol. It's a MUST try.

    Quick and easy to make and delicious (especially the pineapple chunks)! It was also very filling (I was excited about eating the leftovers at work the next day).
