This recipe really grabbed my attention as I was surfing the net. I thought you all would enjoy this recipe too- although I have changed it a bit to suit my tastes the spices and herbs can be interchanged to suit your likes. Hope you like it. Hugs, Pat. Orginal recipe by Rebecca Crump. Revised by me.
