I then had several friends who brought over other knock-off recipes from the internet and we had our own blind taste test – just to make sure that we had a recipe worthy of posting.

And… mine won! (Yes, there was a little Snoopy-dancing on my part.)

Since I posted on Facebook about it, I’ve had hundreds of emails. Yes, I’m giving you the …
