  1. I've never had this before but I am gong to make it. I love it for two reasons: I love the flavor infusion process, this to me is the meat and potoatoes (no pun intended) of cooking. Far too often I don't tink of this crtitical element when in the kitchen. Secondly, that it came fromy your mom. That qulification alone elevates it to a top tier position in my book. Thanks for sharing this, and more like it please!!
