“This is a recipe I came up with on a cold rainy day when I did not want to be outside and really felt like cooking. I was just playing around with different flavors while trying to come up with a good side dish to go with supper. To my surprise it worked out very well. Twoolfe has been after me to post it here so enjoy. :)”
