Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this for my grandson who's going to be on a bus for
quite a few hours- I thought he could share. I just called
him and he said it was delicious, could I make more before
they leave. I thought I'd pause for a second before I make
the second batch and report that college students love it-
easy, too.
