Top Review by Doglover61aka Earnh

This wasn't a favorite in our house. It smelled wonderful while it was cooking, but there was just something that didn't work for us! It was a very easy recipe and I thank you for sharing it. Maybe I'll try the basic recipe again and tweak it a bit to make it work for us!!
