Make this now!

We all love Pinterest but who else is guilty of just pinning away and never actually cooking, making, doing what you pin?? That is me! So, I'm starting with my Yum board and attempting to cook more of what I'm pinning.

I have been eyeing this delicious looking dish for some time now and whipped it up the other night. Oh my goodness. Make it now! It was so easy and so tasty. My kind of recipe!
