    Sorry a note of bitterness among so many compliments, but after following your step by step recipe I got a result unsatisfying to say the least. Maybe the clarity isn't enough? Bravo to those who had what he hoped.

    Hello Luke, really sorry to me if the dish is not managed. Will you tell me in detail what were the problems? Maybe we can figure out together where we went wrong, because even I might have mistaken any dose or, as you say, being unclear. So for me it is important to be able to correct the text if there are errors or possible misconceptions. Can you explain to me? Hello, ADA
