Looks delicious, Nancy! We just had steamed asparagus for dinner last night, so I’ll have to try this recipe the next time. We can’t have corn flakes though. I may try gluten-free rice krispies instead. Thanks!

Thanks Michelle! I started with rice krispies and switched at the last minute. Let me know how it turns out.
