  • “Yabbadabbadoo! This was super easy and SO yummy. Well, it is impossible for me to actually follow a recipe exactly; I used some bacon grease instead of butter, and since I couldn’t find frozen peas and didn’t want to look for them in my freezer, I used fresh broccoli, cut up small. The broccoli came out crunchy and flavorful, like in stir-frys. I used frozen shrimp. I omitted the cayenne. I doubled the recipe and served it over my whole wheat oven bannock. Yum! By the way, I just couldn’t pass up a recipe with “wiggle” in the title!”
