This recipe is from my mother's cookbook. It's easy to find her favorite recipes. These are the pages with all the stains from spills and splatters; she was a wonderful cook. Her specialty was baking and she wasn't afraid to try anything. She cooked with pride and love... everything tasted great! ...Kerry Noon
