We picked this recipe up from the world's most expensive cookbook (one of those that sends you 36 recipe cards every month for $5.99). But, since I'm trying to upload my cookbook to Just a Pinch, I decided to dust this off and try it. The first time, my Ziplock wasn't "locked" very well and it went all of the floor. The next time, though, it came out really tasty. So here it is!
