I went with my sister and brother up to Sandy Point (an area about 30 minutes South of the Canadian border) this last weekend to celebrate my brother's birthday with a little outdoor activity (fishing and crabbing). I planned the menu and decided to make something that my sister (who is very selective about the meats she eats) and brother (who is not selective at all) would enjoy. I have made this dish once before for our girl's night, so I knew it would be enjoyable for all. It is relatively simple and only takes a total of 25-30 minutes to make. I believe I originally may have received this recipe from my oldest sister Laurie who lives over in Germany, but I can't seem to place the email (she sends me recipes every once in a while as recommendations of what to make for girl's night - yes, she's awesome). OH...and yes, please check-out her amazing blog. She is a great vegetarian cook and I get a ton of my recipes from her postings. Anyhow, enjoy this one; it's an easy recipe and a real crowd pleaser!
