    I just made these, probably the best thing I’ve ever cooked. Keep up the recipes.

    Wow! What an impressive cavalade of tastes…Fantastic! My only modification: hot wing sauce in stead of Tabasco, and a bit more than a half tsp, too. 😉

    Just made these last night; planned to only eat two, and I ate the whole batch! You have officially converted me onto the canned tuna bandwagon. These sweet potato tuna cakes are hands down one of the best cutting meals I have had, and the low calories mean I don’t feel guilty in the slightest!

    Must express my immense gratitude for this recipe. Delicious. Healthy. PERFECT for a cut.

    made these tonight and I too ate the whole batch. But lucky for me, I doubled it so I have enough for another meal! They were yummy but I think it needed more on the flavor side…will be experimenting a bit. Great way to get fish into my diet.

    BTW, I was surprised tonight to learn that we are practically neighbors! (I’m in Manchester) I have been following you on youtube for a while now! LOVE your recipes!
    I tried the BEST protein bar recipe earlierr this week…yummmmy too!

    Keep the recipe’s coming!!!
