Well, slap me with the fresh dill, this is so dang-gone-good, you will, and want, and very happily too, eat the whole dog-gone thing yourself. Be prepared to make two ~ one for the dining room table, when you seat your family, and make one you can hide for the back of the fridge, to nibble on at your leisure. So easy, and what a presentation! Made no changes. No need to. Perfect on a fork. Thx!
