My friend Kim brought this over for Friendsgiving Dinner and it was a huge hit! We live an amazing neighborhood with 10 couples who play, travel, exercise, eat, and cook together. There are four amazing chefs among us, and all of us have skills in the kitchen. I asked Kim for the recipe and she told me she got it from her Silver Palate Cookbook. I used to own the cookbook, but I never made this. I made it again and it's spectacular!
