It may technically be spring, but we're here in Colorado, mother nature is giving us mixed signals.  One day the sun in shining and it's 60 degrees outside, the next its sleeting, and the wind is blowing, and all you want to do is go home and curl up on the couch with a warm, fuzzy blanket..and what's that? It's supposed to snow again this weekend?  The following recipe is sure to warm you up on a dreary day.  Enjoy!
