Notes

This sounds odd, but it is DELICIOUS! And easy.

When we gave a shower for my son and beautiful daughter-in-law, we gathered recipes from members of the Hans, Keating, Kenny, Stein and Studer families. Since the recipes came to me first, I was able to copy them all before passing them along. This is from Aunt Colleen, an old friend from high school and now my sister-in-law.
