Yum… This was really,really good! Everyone liked it and it is so easy to make! Thanks to my pal Karen who posted it over on her blog, I get to share it with you. I was breezing through my Google reader the other day and it was nearly lunch time, I was feeling hungry and did not have anything in mind. I came across Karen’s recipe and immediately hopped up, dashed into the kitchen and started in it with several trips back and forth to check on ingredients etc:) According to Karen, it is Keith Urban’s recipe:) Karen is renovating an old farmhouse in Connecticut, you’ll enjoy her blog.
