I adopted this recipe because it didn't have a chef "Mama" here on zaar. I haven't tried it yet, but when I do I will let you know, and I will submit any changes I make. Go ahead and try it if you like! Looks good!

High starch meal (obviously). Could use a little more color, texture good. Mild, pleasant flavor, maybe even a little bland. Satisfying.
