  1. I know there have been a few errors with the new website. This is probably one of them. Most of the ingredients aren’t showing up in the list above.

  2. I made about 10 different recipes today from this site to get ready for my new baby due in a few days. I haven’t eaten this with the lettuce yet but had to try the filling it smelled so good! It’s delicious! I would compare it to Korean bbq. Will definitely be making this again and probably doubling the amount. Thanks for a great recipe!
