This recipe was published in the February 2011, issue of Kentucky Living Magazine. The magazine sent me one of their great mugs as a “thank you”. I had no idea I was getting this little gift and was very surprised when it arrived in the mail along with a note from Paul Wesslund, Editor. Thanks to Kentucky Living! It is always nice to see something you submit accepted and published. I am posting a picture of the mug and the magazine, too!
