The other day when I was planning my menu for the week, I came across a recipe I had marked as a favorite. I haven’t made it in ages because it was tucked away in a little recipe box I rarely open. Wow, am I glad I resurrected this one!
It’s so easy to make and is so delicious, it could easily become your favorite new dish to take to a party or potluck.
If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I love simple, easy and delicious recipes. This one hits the top of the charts!
