It's my grandson's first birthday Sunday, I will make this.

I made this dish after watching you prepare it on one of your shows. It was so so so good. My husband who doesn't eat leftovers normally, ate this for three days. Not only was it delicious, but so simple to make. We used cod and the local supermarket had lobster on sale so we added that too. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe with us. Best Wishes!!

Now I'm hooked on watching your son's show, you are truly blessed, he's awesome too. You are a wonderful lady, thanks for all the wonderful dishes. God bless you and your family.
