Good Morning all, how is everyone on this Wednesday.  Today's recipe comes from Lorna Barrett's "Chapter and Hearse".  If you like Books, Murder and Recipes you'll love this book. Small town Murder Mystery Bookstore owner gets involved in murder when she helps to launch her sisters new cookbook.  Lots fun twists and turns so kick back and enjoy.  But before you do that pull that apron out, your gonna love this recipe. I started cooking this recipe and Conor, my youngest took over.  So if you have kids they might like to help you.  Conor loves to cook and this was very easy recipe. This recipe was adapted to fit my families needs.  So here's the recipe.
