About 15 years ago a local newspaper had a food section feature entitled "Cheap Thrills Cuisine", in which a recipe was published in comic strip form. Each week, a complete recipe would be laid out in four or five illustrated panels - a cute idea, maybe meant to get teenagers interested in cooking. I cut out and saved several of them and recently came across this one, and although I haven't yet tried it, it sounds not only good, but easy, too! Photo via Bing.
