MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 23, 2009

I made this as a fund raiser for our church and it was well recieved. I had a little left over when I made a double recipe and froze it for our recent road trip in the motor home and wow was it great!! (Leftovers were put into a loafe pan, and it made 4 servings). I'll make this again and again, and make sure I have one in the freezer at all times. Probably would last a month or so in the freezer if wrapped tight.
