  1. We have a 3 year old (who will eat anything) and twin 16-month olds (who are kind of picky!), and they all loved it. Of course, my husband and I did, too, but the fact that my kids will eat it was HUGE in our household. This is going in to my regular rotation.
  2. my mil makes this every year for xmas morning. she gave me the recipe and it is already on here. i shared this recipe with my sister this year also and her whole family really loved it. this will always be a family tradition for us, thanks for posting!


<p>I don't really like answering about me sections, but here goes nothing.....I live in Chicago, IL. Went to culinary school. Used to work in a french restaurant in Downtown Chicago as a pastry chef but now I am a stay at home mom. I went to school for cuisine, not pastry, and actually I am much better at cuisine, however I've always wanted to study more pastry. I am not bad at it, I'm actually very good (tooting my own horn), but everyone says I have a natural talent for cuisine. Either way, I love cooking because it is my meditative time. However, when I cook at home, no one dares to walk into the kitchen because I am very bossy and they would rather not deal with me....heehee! <br />I also love to craft, read, and write. I write a lot. Been working on short stories lately, but I've always been more of a poem freak. I love to read....I have a massive collection of books....every type of book. They are mostly cook books and poetry collections, but I also love history, religion, drama, suspense, romance (not the cheesy kind, my favorite book of all time is love in the time of cholera by gabriel garcia marquez, I have yet to see the movie), mystery, murder mystery (second favorite book is and then there were none by agatha christie). <br />And my rambling continues....I come from a small family, I suppose, 1 brother 1 sister and my parents. My brother is married with 3 kiddies, my sister is a single mom of 1. I am engaged to the love of my life. To clarify, engaged is in parentheses because we cannot legally get married yet. I am a lesbian and I am very hopeful to the legalization of gay marriage because I would marry my girlfriend in a heartbeat. We have a 5 year old son, Joel,and a daughter from her previous relationship, Ashley, 12. I will post some pictures on here as soon as I have some time. Enough rambling....thanks for reading, if you actually stayed awake through the whole thing. <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= alt= /></a></p>
