    My neighbors gave me a lot of tangerines, and I picked this recipe to get rid of some. YUM! I took the pie to the same neighbors for New Years, and we all thought it rated five stars. Any kind of topping would be overkill.

    I don't know if I did something wrong or if the instructions just weren't detailed enough but I thought it tasted awful. All I could taste was the egg. The recipe called for 4 large eggs but I only had Jumbo, so I used 3. Maybe I should have used 2. Also, there was no picture or description of the finished product so I didn't know what it was supposed to look like when done, but mine looked very dark brown. I'm glad I tasted it before anyone else.

I'm 41y/o wife and mother of 2. I've been a nurse for 20 years. We live in a small town in Arkansas. My passion is cooking. I love to cook anything and everything. Luckily my family is adventerous in their eating habits, so I have lots of fun trying new things out on them. I also like camping, traveling, gardening,water sports and collecting recipes. I like getting to know other people from other parts of the world. We have 5 pets, 2 dogs and 3 ferrets. My worst pet peeve is when people stick their nose up at a dish before trying it, because they know a certain ingredient is in it. I know everyone has different tastes, but picky eaters just don't know what they are missing when they turn down a dish they havent even tried.
