I came across this recipe last night and wanted to post it here for safe keeping. It sounded different and something that I will try as the weather cools off a bit more. This was posted in Southwest Living magazine, November/December 2010 issue, by Kathy Maanika, Escanaba, MI. She stated Prep: 40 minutes, Cook: 25 minutes, Bake: 50 minutes, Cool: 15 minutes. A big special thanks in advance to Kathy, I'm sure it will be wonderful.
