  1. one of my family’s fave, this one’s easy to make.

    it took me awhile to list the ingredients and the how to’s, though. you see, we do not have a family recipe book of sorts. we’re more like “watch, help, taste, learn, cook!” kind.

    geez! you know what i mean!

    oh, and please don’t tell anyone our family’s secret recipe 😉 enjoy!
