Mahalo for posting this recipe. I only had a few ingredients in my kitchen and was able to pull this off with minor adjustments. I substituted 1 % milk (although I'm sure whole milk would taste better), and I used baking powder instead of cornstarch (I had no idea if it would work. All I can say is, it didn't not work. Haha). All and all, everyone (hubby and keiki (6 & 4) seemed to really like it! We poured it over whole wheat spaghetti noodles and leftover rotisserie chicken. Pretty okay dinner. Aloha!
