My 8 year old grandson Gavin made up this recipe (with a little guiding). He keeps asking me everyday if I put his recipe on Just A Pinch for him... Today (5-4-2011) I will be able to answer him with a big, happy, loud... YES!

It is very good too! Gavin is getting to be a good cook... especially for his age! He said if this wins a trip... he is going to help cook it and explain it! LOL
