I was trying to decide what to make for my Monday work treat but didn't really want to get into doing a lot of work, so stumbled upon this on FB. I had all the ingredients on hand so thought what the heck. Was worth making and everyone loved it. So I think this would be a good one when you have a crowd for dinner.
