I’ve resisted the temptation to share recipes here at Semicolon for a couple of reasons. First of all, I don’t think I’m much of a cook. When I got married I knew how to fry everything and bake a few things with a recipe, but that’s all. Now I know a little more, but Im still cooking-challenged.
Then there’s the stereotype of “mom blogs” full of product reviews and recipes that I wanted to avoid. However, this recipe is one of my favorites, and I thought you all might enjoy it.
