This is so good, this is a hand-me-down family recipe.

Super easy and just the ticket for a busy, snowy day. I did have to kick up the spices a bit by adding about 1/4 teaspoon each of garlic powder and cumin, also little molasses, something my mom taught me and then reduced the butter to about 1.5 tablespoons. Tasty and really filling. My DH loved this and is looking forward to taking the leftovers to work. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
