This should warm you up!! Just the smell in the house makes my mouth water. I treated my neighbour to some last week and she keeps asking when I will make some more. "Good for the heart" comfort. Enjoy.

This is good! I made this as directed. For my family, this needed more direction or intensity of flavor. I so appreciate that tastes can be different and for those who appreciate a mellow comfort-food flavor, this is your dish! Thanks, Sue's Kitchen! Made for Spring 2011 PAC.
I made a few changes to fit my family's preferances, but it is an excellant recipe all around. Will happily make again.
