  1. I didn’t have some expectations regarding that title, but then the more I was amazed.

    The writer did a terrific job. I spent a few minutes studying and checking the truth.
    Everything is clear and understandable.

  2. 5 stars
    This is so delicious! Even my kids like it! They are 6,4 and 2 and they call it “Hot hot” We made this everyday during our Seattle snowpocolypse last week!
