I remember the first time I had this...My mom made it, and it was so good! I got the recipe, but never made it myself until a few years ago, it just seemed to complicated...Weeeeelllllllll, I feel stupid...it's not that complicated at all...and now I'm glad mom found this, because I might just have turned the page and ignored it!
