So I tallied the calories: total calories per recipe 793.
1/2 the recipe (since its for 2 servings) equals 396.5 per serving,
1/3 of the recipe is 264.3 calories
1/4 of the recipe is 198.25 calories

I was really looking forward to this recipe, but I found it very very bland, couldn't even eat 1/2 cup

The total recipe is huge, if it serves two at 320 calories, I'd be very surprised! I'm going to try and figure this one out calorie by calorie. There is no way I could eat 1/2 of this recipe. But a reasonable serving looks like 1 - 1 1/2 cups. I'm going to break it down and see what I get as a reading. If I get back here, I'll let you know my finding.

This recipe rocks! 9 is a lot of points, but it sticks to your ribs and is well worth the generous serving you get (alternately, having only a cup works, as well). Men like this one very much!
