  1. I cannot tell you how happy you made me by stopping by. I've "met" so many wonderful people via blogging and sometimes cannot keep up...so your visit reminded me of your refreshing spirit and reminded me to visit you. :-)

    Im so glad taht my post touched your heart.

    Is Troy anywhere near Marietta OHIO, b/c we may be moving there.

    This recipe sounds yummy too, btw. Blessings, Angela

  2. Yum! I'm going to make this. When I need comfort food, white rice is what I crave. When I was little and would get sick, my mom would make rice for me and put a TON of butter in it!

  3. Have you tried the Cake Spice on it? I bet that's yummy too!
