    In this day and age, we know that eating real food like this is HEALTHY and counting calories is not the way to eat! That's why I make Martha's recipes... she is a great advocate of eating healthy food and not succumbing to false dietary beliefs such as what you are asking!

    I made this for dinner tonight. It was so fresh and tasty. I forgot the jack cheese, but didn't miss the taste.

    I agree as well. I usually just enter the recipe on, and I am able to get the important information. It is just annoying to have to do it!

    I fourth it. In this day and age, nutritional information is a must.

    I third this sentiment, this site would be much more valuable with nutritional information included.
