I’ve been following Jill’s Southern Living Challenge blog. She challenged herself to try 100 Southern Living recipes in 2010. She made tons of recipes that I’ve had bookmarked for years. This recipe has been on my “to make” list for a really long time. I finally decided that I must make this recipe after Jill raved about it. I can’t believe that it took me so long to make this! It was fantastic. It even tasted great reheated the next day. This is a recipe that I will be making over and over. It doesn’t photograph well, but, believe me, it is worth making!
