5 wonderful stars! DH mentioned at least 4 times that he liked this while we were still at the dinner table so that's a sure sign of a hit recipe. It's soo simple it's almost embarrasingly easy to make, the flavours are there and everything balances wonderfully. I did increase the nutmeg considerably to about 1 teaspoon. Please see my rating system: 5 wonderful stars for a simple, quick and easy recipe that left DH doing to get more and being dissapointed when he found the pot empty. We will make this often. Thanks!
