My sister makes this everytime we go to visit her in Pennsylvania. I don't know one family member who doesn't like it. Some of our best breakfasts were spent out on her deck in the summer, in our p.j.'s well into the afternoon, telling stories, laughing and munching on this with our coffee! Try it! I'm positive you and your loved ones are going to love it!
