Many Many years ago a bunch of my online friends got together to do a mass recipe swap in the hopes of writing a cookbook to benefit an animal shelter. While the cookbook never got off the ground, I saved all the recipes that came out of it and this was one of them. Very simple to make and yummy to eat!
