As 2009 Recipe Contest Winner, Jocelyn states, "After experimenting with Pamela's Products, I came up with this delicious, spicy, savory treat that no one could tell it didn't have gluten! I don't see any reason why I have to eat differently than other people so I make the things my friends and family are used to--just gluten-free. We all enjoy them together."
