Oh my darlin', oh my darlin'... I just adore clemetines, and it's clementine season now. I found this in the Cooking Light newsletter and it's luscious!

This was truely wonderful! I took a trip to Greece where you could see clementines growing everywhere and decided to use this recipe for a greek dinner party. The only thing I added was a cinnamon stick with the addition of the orange liqueur. I am lucky enough to find a greek yogurt that is delicious, organic and fat free (oikos brand) and is far superior to other yogurts. Did not thin the yogurt with milk as the orange sauce did that. Looking forward to making again! Thanks Mirj!
I am not adding stars to my review because I don't think my clementines were the best and this turned out very very bitter. The yogurt sauce was divine, but I needed almost double the amount listed to temper the bitter taste. I truly think it was because my clementines were not so good. So be sure to use top knotch clementines! This smelled amazing, I wish it had tasted as good as it smelled. Thanks for such a neat one to try, mirj!
