Made these for a late evening Valentine's Day dinner with DH; put them on to biol while I put baby DS to sleep. These were quick and easy to make, looked fancy and weren't overly flavored. They had a light lemon flavor. Did add a little salt to the finished product; may add a few onions next time too. Made for Healthy Choices Tag Feb 2010.
