    I love this recipe and I love the format of the article. Amy doesn’t fee the need to go on and on and on about her process. She tells the ingredients, gives the steps, and expects that you have some basic knowledge and instinct in a kitchen. And the dish is freaking delicious! Just what I was looking for.
