Have I told you guys how much of a picky eater I am?  I am the kid who would NEVER eat their vegetables growing up.  If it looked healthy at all – I wouldn’t eat it.  haha.  NOW of course, my eating habits have changed but I am STILL super picky! I REFUSE to even TRY sushi.  The ONLY fish I will eat is salmon.  And that’s been a recent development within the past year.  :PI don’t know why I’m going into all that – but the point is…. I’m hard to please.  I like what I like and I have a hard time venturing out with new foods.  SO if I tell you something is good you better believe it’s GOOD.  ;)  And THIS my friends?  This recipe is AMAZING.
