I have a stack of printed out recipes from 1997 & 1998 - when I was first getting busy on the net. (and obviously before there were sites such as Zaar to store said recipes). So now I'm slowly sorting through them, checking for duplicates and posting what still looks interesting. My goal- no more stacks! This came from ????? on 12/17/97. It sounds as if it could probably benefit from some added spices or herbs (even cheese) but I still like the technique.
