Personal Notes:
This dish has some great history. Ricky has been talking about cooking this dish for years and yet he has never made it for anyone that he has promised it to (his parents, step-parents, and his wife)!! I was so lucky he was willing to part with the recipe. Hopefully he'll make it for us all someday!
