OK, so I play "hearts" , ran the table (that never happens) and need a break. It's the summer, it's the weeknd, grill, music, cards . . . must make this recipe. Sounds perfect. Let you know. When I need a fool-proof meal, I always turn to a you.
I likely would have skipped over this recipe but in her search for low carb dishes, the wife picked this one... I used 'Can't Believe It's Not Butter Lite, as well as dried spices... What a tasty dish...Surprised the heck out of me... Will make again, often...
