This was one of those make-it-up-as-I-go recipes. Sometimes they turn out great, sometimes... not so much.

This one was definitely a great one!

Problem is, I forgot to write it all down (which I tend to do quite often).

I think I remember everything I threw in there thought. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.
