I would never in a million years have thought up this recipe, but the combination of flavors is wonderful! This one is definitely in my recipe rotation.

I bought the recipe book at the grocery store a while back and made this recipe for my family. (I doubled it) They LOVED it! Somehow I lost the book, so I was so happy to see that it was on the Taste of Home website.
