Personal Notes:
Jessie and I made this the first time at an Easter dinner we made together. Going through cook books and cooking magazines with Jessie, trying to find new recipes we hadn't tried, has become some of my fondest memories. We both love looking and talking about what we could do "just a little" different to make the recipe our "own". Finding this recipe while doing this cookbook brought back all those happy memories. It was worth all the work just to have that!
