"The recipe calls for uncooked rice. . . cook it!..." See more"
"This took a long time to make, and why would you use that much ground beef only to freeze over half of it? The measurements need to be adjusted, and the taste was odd. Not really bad, but not that goo..." See mored either. On a positive note, my kids thought it was hilarious!"
