The recipe was great. I made with no changes. However, I did find that AQUA nail polish to be a super turn-off! Even when I was eating the recipe I cooked, I found myself searching for AQUA chips before I put my bite into my mouth. Hint: Respected chefs don't wear colored nail polish. Most simply wear buffed nails.

If not everyone is on a diet , you will want to increase the recipe by about half, including the maple syrup glaze. One serving is enough for someone on a diet, but not enough for someone who is active and at the proper weight.
