  • I don't know why anonymous from Victorville,CA gave you one star just because you didn't count the calories for her. She can just do it herself, none of the rest of us are worried about it, that isn't what this forum is for. Go find yourself a diet website if that is what you want. If she didn't cook the dish she shouldn't be reviewing at all. That is what this forum is for, someone needs to educate her. She should not have rated you one star, that's just being mean. The dish was wonderful, just the thing to bring comfort on a cold winter night. Thanks for passing the recipe on to us. It was really good. I added onion and garlic to my ground beef for extra spice. Ommm good!
