I just wanted to let you know that I was very eager to try this recipe, I printed it off in Jamnurary this year, Just haven't got around to THIS one. But I Joined up 4-6-07 & today I was just checking things out & seen a folder called Bargain Basement. Stating,"These deserve a second look". So, when I came across this one that I had already found & printed off in Janurary!! It seemed right to let you know, and to put it in my pile of "Make this week". I'm sure I'll love it & others too, I'll be sure to rate it as soon as I've tried it. til' then... Mon
