So I made this recipe a while back, just posted the photo on various facebook groups and on my page, I did not do the usual step by step photos as a usually do, so i did not put the recipe online, but people really wanted the recipe. Luckily I did remember what I put in, so here is a simply recipe without the step by step photos. Just as simple to make as as the recipe is simplefied as well. But oh so delicious!
