I have been making this for about a year now. I got the recipe from the magazine, and it is a wonderful Autumn/ Winter recipe. I made it for family get- togethers and it is always received warmly. The only change I have made is I used pecans instead of walnuts (I didn't have walnuts). We would like it either way.Thanks for submitting...I'm actually making it for dinner tomorrow!
