RECIPE BACKSTORY
Got this recipe from The Food Network...Sunny Anderson made it and I thought it looked simple and yummy. The only thing I changed was the addition of mustard powder, as I thought the sauce was a bit bland. Sorry there are no pics...it got eaten too fast! I'll try to take some next time.
