The construction of the Honey-Mustard recipe was immediately followed by a vigorous licking of any utensil used in its creation. I'm wishing for my Christmas stocking to be stuffed with a few extra spatulas this year.
I made the Honey Djon and it is excellent!
These little gems are wonderful! They add a lot to sandwiches when brown bagging for work.
