Three words: Quick. Easy. Delicious! That’s all you need to tell me and I’m sold. I am a lover of good food. But I’m quick to turn my head as soon as they start narrating the intricacy in all the chopping and blending and other complicated stuff one needs to go through to achieve something that will be scarfed down in less than 7 minutes. I’m sure most moms will agree with me on this one. So I was happy to find this recipe. This was Paula and Bobby Deen’s recipe I found on http://www.foodnetwork.com and I was impressed by how simple it was. Sorry Paula and Bobby, but now, I own this recipe. I saw. I cooked. I conquered.
I served this on my brother’s birthday and they loved it.
