Do you have recipes that you eat like maybe once a year but when you do it’s because you have an intense craving for it? This recipe is like that for me.

To curb my cravings I started using tricks to fool myself into thinking I was eating one thing when in actuality I wasn’t. Most times I failed miserably. I enjoyed the real foods I was eating.. but honestly I found it hard to make one thing taste like something else.
