I received an email from Recipe4Living this morning and this is just one of the featured recipes that I thought sounded interesting. I have not tried this recipe yet so the number of servings is estimated. If you make them before I do, please let me know how many you got from the recipe. :-) Visit www.recipe4living.com website for any more information.
