My sweet cousin sent me this recipe, and it was phenomenal. James and I both loved it. I made some slight changes to accomodate for what I had. Either way, it's easy and fabulous. This is a Paula Deen recipe, and I ADORE her, as most of you likely already know. Instead of layering the ingredients like the recipe calls for, I became impatient and just mixed everything together.
