“This is comfort food for a friend of mine! Everytime he comes to visit, he manages to get himself invited for dinner and I am sure you know what is "lovingly" prepared. He found it on BBGoodFood.com, how did he know that was one of my favorite sites? Have allowed a 20 minute cooling time, if you want it to remain longer -- I am sure you can calculate it.”
