From Denny: This little easy gem of a recipe was in our local newspaper's food section this week. It is funny how your mind can get stuck in a rut - like thinking crock pots are only good for savory meals.

I was literally bowled over by how ridiculously simple and delicious it is. Now why didn't I think up this creative one? Oh, well, someone else did. And, most importantly, they decided to share with the rest of us! :)
