Someone mentioned a great Persian lima bean and rice dish they had once. Could it be Baghali Polo?
Also…Sonja mentioned some Frosted Irish Cream Brownies that people wanted the link to (they look awfully good!)
Looking forward to discussing The Fortune Cookie Chronicles with you next month on Monday April 11th, 2011.
