This is half a recipe review and half another rave about Food.com. Juli's recipe looks perfect(that means it looks like mine) and the nutrition values are all there!!! I haven't tested all the numbers, but they look good so far, and that has been impossible to find until now.
I am ecstatic(well happy to find all the data, anyway).
Thanks Juli, thanks Food.com.
