As you know by now, I have a soft spot for any recipe that meets both my ease and taste criteria. Although I don’t mind fiddling with a complicated recipe once in a while, I prefer my day to day cooking to be as straight forward and, of course, as tasty as possible. This one hit the mark in every way. It was one of those ‘might as well try it, the kids will eat it even if it is just okay’ kind of recipes that you just cannot believe how good it really is, considering it took you such little effort.
I made this on one of those stereotypical ‘I just want to sit on the couch and each cheesecake’ kind of days. It wasn’t cheesecake but it might be my next new ‘go to’ when I have a day like that.
