  1. Yum, this is so lovely and soooo easy! I will have to try it very soon! 😀

    1. That’s great.. Do let me know when you try it..thank you so much for stopping by

  2. This sounds so delicious! And how impressive that it can all be cooked in a microwave. Sometimes I think the microwave is unfairly maligned; it cooks things so quickly and while not always the tool for the job, sometimes it does just what it has too! Besides, I do like convenient things 🙂
