    canarygirl's Note:

    Simple and delicious! I can't remember exactly which magazine I got this from--I've had the recipe for so long, but I think it was Parents, or Parenting.

      This came in handy on Fathers' Day. We doubled the recipe to cover French bread sliced lengthwise. Great side for foods off the grill!
