I aborted this while trying to put it together; I wish the ingredients were listed with volume measures rather than weight. I do have a kitchen scale, and when I weighed out 2 ounces of garlic, it would have been like 2 whole heads, lol.. I'm sure the restaurant does make these using weight measurements for consistency when making up huge batches, and scaled it down for family use, but it just doesn't seem right..

I wondered about this when watching thowdown because I know it didn't have any salt or pepper added. I wonder if this would help. I know nothing tastes good without salt and pepper!
