  2. Hello! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Great article! Thanks a lot for the helpful info! One last thing, I am having problems with subscribing to your RSS feed, could you help me with the subscribing process? Anyway, counting down to another fascinating post!

  4. The first time I tried this recipe was in the store at one of those food demonstration booths that are set up on the weekends. I have very picky children who have a hard time eating anything without having issues, so I was unsure what to expect when they handed me a little cup with a spoon in it. I gave a bite to my 18 month old first. He LOVED it, then my 4 and 6 year old children followed. They all wanted more! The lady gave them each a really full sample cup each. They each devoured it! I didn’t immediatly buy the ingredients, but when my son asked for it the next night I said “why not”. I made the VERY SIMPLE recipe that night. My husband, who originally hadn’t tried it, couldn’t get enough. We have made it 5 times in the last two months. (in fact we are making it again tonight and I had to look up the recipe) It is a big hit around our house. We actually make double batches and then portion it out and freeze it so that we can take it to work with us throughout the week. EXCELLENT RECIPE! I hope to see more creations like this from the Kroger kitchen soon! THANKS BUNCHES! ~The Cardinal Family
