My uncle grew up in Mohave, California.

This recipe was given to my uncle by a long-time friend of the family who lived in Mohave, Mrs. T. Mrs. T kept desert turtles in her front yard the fence was designed so that they couldn't get out.

She had a big yard that they roamed in, and she fed them so they were safe and cared for.

Those turtles were so beautiful!
