This is an awesome recipe. The only change that I made was to use a brown sugar replacement as I am diabetic. I will make this many times again and it is special enough to serve at a holiday meal but easy enough to prepare anytime. The flavors just melt in your mouth and the taste buds scream for more. Simply delicious!!!!!
