  1. love your ingredient list, but looks a little thin. I have used a Southern Living ( I’m sure it needs a trademark but I don’t know how to do that except in research) recipe from a few years ago that really needs to be totally eaten the night cooked. The taste is tremendous and I think yours might be better with a little less.
