I found this recipe during a bout of insomnia while visiting CK’s grandparents in Connecticut. Amusingly enough, I don’t own one of those all-in-one printer, copier, scanner machines but the Kellys do, so I sat in their office flipping through pages and pages of recipes and photocopying the ones I hoped to try.
