“Anna Ginsbergs, 2006 Pillsbury Bake-Off winner. An old-fashioned chicken dinner is updated for two, with a surprising ingredient that makes the spinach stuffing extra special. The Zaar computer is not recognizing '1 package' of Pillsbury Dunkables...(the recipe uses only 9 sticks, and 3 of the syrup cups from the package of dunkables).”
