Part of the joy of food and cooking is watching TV cooking shows. Like everything else, some are really good. Some are not so good. Some inspire me to cook something new, try different techniques or experience different flavor combinations. This is a wonderful Jacque Pepin recipe we saw while watching TV at my Dad’s house one Sunday afternoon. It looked so good we simply had to try it. We have shared this recipe with several of our friends who have raved about it, too. Not only is this lick the plate delicious but it’s easy and quick for weeknight meals.
