When Hubby comes home and says that the house is filled with all his favorite food smells, you know you're doing something right. When your house STILL smells like that two days later...ummm, I'm not quite sure what that means. ::scratches head::
Point is, I made something that smells amazing and tastes even MORE so. I am pretty excited to post this because I created this recipe using my own noggin. Pretty impressive if I do say so myself. Sorry to toot my own horn, I'm just happy that my noggin is working. YAY for New Year's Resolutions.
