Was re-org my mailbox when I came across this recipe cutting from the Spore Womens Weekly mazg Nov2004 issue. & since I got all d ingredients on hand, thot I give it a try. But instead of baking, I grill it instead. Turn out almost like d pix in d mazg (forgotten to take pic) & it taste very nice & juicy.
