so good. so fragrant. so tasty. and best of all, so easy to throw together. recipes that take less than an hour to put together are okay in my book !

the original recipe called for 2 T of brown sugar which was a little too sweet for my tastes. i’ll probably cut it down to 1 or 1.5 T brown sugar next time. also the ginger was a little too powerful, so i’ll probably cut that in half, too, next time… which may be very soon !
