This recipe is a favorite among my Dad's side of the family. In fact, we can count on it being at almost every holiday gathering. All of my aunts and cousins, along with myself, make it for our families. The first time I made this after was when my in-laws came for a weekend visit, a week after we returned from our honeymoon. My mother-in-law loved it, and asked for the recipe. I knew then that if my mother-in-law asked for the recipe, it was a good one!
