“I wrote out this recipe AGES ago -- don't remember where I found it -- but finally tried it this week. Oh. my. goodness. I HAVE BEEN MISSING OUT!!! Simple and irrisistible! Tastes good the first day, but definitely better a day later; my recommendation would be to make it a day in advance if it's for a special occasion.”
