This one is a fabulous recipe. I used to make it in university, but then lost the recipe. Joy of joys I've found it again. It's been requested for our Canadian/Russian/Chinese/French Christmas day party for our friends that are Buddist, Catholic, Jewish and Atheist . A recipe that works for all of us...DEFINATLY worth the time it takes.
