    I just want to tell you how much I appreciate the inclusion of an actual SERVING SIZE in this recipe. Some recipe creators fail miserably to consider those of us who are concerned with such things. It's incredibly frustrating to try to figure out the calories of, say, 100 grams (not to mention other things) when a recipe blithely indicates that it serves 8-12. So, you have my very sincere thanks for specifying serving size! (And it was delicious.)
