Found this on "Happy Love Strawberry"'s blog. (http://happylovestrawberry.blogspot.com) It looked delicious so I'm reposting it here for everybody else to try out here on Zaar. She credits this recipe as, "Recipe adapted from The People's Cookbook, as seen in Good Food magazine (July 07)." Cook time is set time.
