I'm not much of a cook, but I recently came across this recipe on Pinterest and it looked fairly simple and tasty. I was able to purchase all of the ingredients at Trader Joe's for roughly $15 (made the recipe 4 times over). This is a quick, simple, and delicious recipe that all of my friends loved! I shared the recipe with at least 6 friends from my holiday party's.
