This dish is so so easy to make, but is so so satisfying. I make this often, and it is a variation of a recipe I found years ago in a Pillsbury cook book. It makes the house smell great and is especially good on a crisp fall night, although I've noticed that it disappears quickly no matter what the temperature is outside. The attached picture is at the end of the meal when the eater paused for just a moment so I could snap the picture.
