I found this recipe somewhere on the Internet a few years ago and sent it to my mom. She made it and it was very good, so it has become a staple for family dinners. It's a great accompaniment to plain roasted, baked, or grilled meats or fish, and it's just as good reheated as leftovers as it is when first made.
