Now, I ask you…Don’t these words make you curious about this recipe? I fixed this for the family last night and they all raved about it. It was delicious, but it also looked so pretty when I plated it for serving. I happen to think the presentation of a dish adds to its appeal, don't you?
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
