I got this recipe from a cooking site! It was posted by one of my favorite cooks known as Marky90...I love every recipe of her's that I've tried! This is a gem! Its so tasty and easy to make! I was making this about twice a month! I changed a few things...such as the name of the recipe and I added broccoli and used chicken instead of pork. The photo is my own.
