I honestly can say that this is one of the easiest recipes we've scrounged up. I hope you all enjoy it. If you like Scottish food, I encourage you to google Scottish recipes. They love putting whiskey in their recipes, but it's not always a main ingredient. Any way, enjoy and I will see you all tomorrow!
