  1. This is very good and easy; I made this twice for breakfast and both times we really enjoyed it. Yet even after the second time I couldn't figure out exactly how the seasoning is supposed to taste. Maybe it's just my barbaric taste or maybe I've been messing up, but it seems that if I absolutely follow the recipe the filling comes out a bit too salty and not spicy (or sour) enough. The first time I ended up adding a bit of lime juice and cayenne, and the second time a bit of lemon juice and chili paste.


Can't believe I've been a member here for 18 years! It's changed a lot since the old RecipeZaar days and maybe or maybe not for the better. It used to be a community and now it's just a tool. Sad, but life goes on. I have been in Kentucky for 12 years now and enjoy the country lifestyle, along with master gardening. Recipes I've found here since Day One are still in my rotation. Don't entertain that much anymore, so finding new and exciting foods is no longer center stage. Just glad to have so many good recipes to fall back on because eating out is expensive and sometimes too far to drive.
