Side note, this is on my to-do list, so I have yet to take on this recipe and therefore want to say:
I am apprehensive about the rosemary, so if you are too, then my suggestion is maybe test a few with and a few without it to find out how you really feel.  That's my plan.
Secondly, I was recently told that to slim down people are using the agave nectar as a substitute for honey.  So if you're thinking that's also a deal breaker, go ahead and try it with a light honey instead.  Happy cooking!
