I have some other things on the agenda for today, including a fun giveaway, but I ran across this recipe and thought I’d put it up here for safekeeping. This is from the Land o’ Lakes test kitchen, where you can find the original version and a photo. I’ve adapted it slightly below in case the link gets changed, but be sure to check the original so you can see the picture. Nobody’s reviewed it yet, so you can be the first!
