    This was so tasty JK. We devoured it right out of the baking dish. Not very civilized, but oh so good,
    Thanks!!

    Yummy, this sounds elegant and fulfilling. I would have never thought to put into my favorite dish...serrano ham. My hubby and myself, love this kind of food. It gets printed out and put into my ever expanding "to cook file"!
