Long story short, I'm not making it just for myself, since I know I'd probably end up eating all myself. It's just that good :)

cabbageHonesty is important in blogging, don't you think? So, I want to admit that when I first saw this recipe in a magazine, I wasn't too excited to try it.I was on a layover at the Phoenix airport, and browsing a magazine rack, I picked up the latest edition of Phoenix Home and Garden. With plenty of time to burn, I flipped through the pages and found an article entitledCabbage Is King.
