If possible, could the author please read over the Method as it has a lot of spelling mistakes and needs editing. Perhaps if you could also specify which herbs you used and edit to show where you used the margarine and milk. I'm sure the recipe will be lovely, the way it is presented is letting it down. No offence meant.
