This recipe was given to me by my friend Tammy and I just love it. I seem to struggle with what to serve as side dishes with my meals and this recipe helps solve that problem. It's super simple and can be made ahead of time, which I love. I would never, ever make this for my dear sister, though, because she doesn't like her vegetables "sweet"; I, however, like that sweet and savory combination, so this recipe is a real keeper in my book.
