This is from the Favorite Brand Names Cookbook. I'm trying to get some of the recipes up here before I have to return the book to the library AGAIN. If anyone tries it, please let me know how you like it! This one sounds realllly savory and I can't wait to try it! Pineapples and cinnamon sticks? Yummy!
