Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



As a newbie to the cooking world I really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to follow and the end result was better than expected. A must on a cold day, or the day after that, or the day after that...

I made this Sunday and thought is was pretty good, but my husband was not crazy about it. Once I make him eat the left overs for the next two nights, I guess that will be it for this one!!!!
