MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 7, 2013

I didn't have any apricot spreadable jam so I used orange marmalade. It was really good and so easy to fix. My husband enjoyed it. Served it with mac and cheese, mixed vegetables, dressing and Hawaiian rolls.

I fixed this for Sunday dinner today. It turned out beautifully! Such an easy recipe -- such spectacular results! Served with baked sweet potato and steamed asparagus. Mmmmmm!
