This recipe was given to me by "My Bestest Art Buddy" in the whole wide world. I had the honor of working with Kendra for over 5 years at Lamar Advertising. Everyone who knows & loves my friend, knows this recipe just as well, as this is one of her signature dishes.
With the onset of Fall, I had been craving it, and last weekend's company gave me a great excuse to make it again...YUM! This is a great recipe to have in your arsenal with Thanksgiving just around the corner. Believe me, it's fantastic and fairly easy to make!!!
