I've played around in the kitchen with different recipes and come up with something my family can live with every day all day! Yum! This is my party version, so if you're only cooking for a small dinner or gathering, you can cut this recipe right in half! ***Disclaimer - 99% of the dishes represented by the photographs are shot with a Pro SLR camera and owned by me.
