This is from the Marlboro cookbook. My dearest friend and I use to drool over the cookbook that was on the shelf at a local restaurant. We loved the pictures as well as the recipes. For years I cooked this recipe from a copy I was allowed to make from the book.

Unfortunately, I now have the book to drool over and cook from by myself. I inherited the book from my friend a couple of years ago. Marlyse and I were friends for over 30 years. We saw each other through marriages, deaths and joys....
