    I am so delighted that you enjoyed it!! My husband (CaptainCookie here on SP) is an executive chef and left the food services business after over 20 years to become a ship's captain. No matter his job, his food is GREAT! I will let him know that his recipe was enjoyed!!

  • My family loved it which is pretty amazing my daughter had a second helping. Originally was making this for a theme party but we didn't go and was testing this on my family to see if I would bring it. We froze the leftovers and will have another night. - 8/1/11
