Please stop complaining all of you...! This article is rather interesting. It shows how people can be creative using products straight from Mother Nature. Not only does it not cost a lot but it is also very healthy. Certainly much better than to buy and eat unhealthy food such as burgers and chips...I love cooking and using my imagination. People should be a bit more adventurous with their food and cooking. Nothing wrong with creativity...!Florence
