From my email bag,
"Hi, Suzanne! Yesterday I made your Waikiki Beach Chicken for visiting relatives. Suzanne, it was the best chicken I've ever made. Succulent, moist, falling-off-the-bone delicious. I used fresh diced ginger and drumsticks (that's what we had in the freezer) instead of the intended ingredients and paired it with my own version of scalloped potatoes (all crunchy and brown on top) fresh picked kale and beets, homemade applesauce, and a salad. For dessert we had angel food cake with our homemade elderberry "jam" (it didn't quite gel! LOL) and whipped cream. Man, was it tasty. I just wanted to write and thank you for a new favorite!"--Author Aaron Lazar
