Hahah my friend gave me this recipe and in lack of any other name, she put this as the email subject line. Works for me :) Just a fair warning: make sure you like goat cheese before making this recipe as it is definitely the predominate taste.

So yummy! So easy. Decided to make as a side dish, but could easily have eaten it as a main course! Thanks Sofie! Made for Culinary Quest 2014, Int'l Agents of Quest!
