This recipe was given to me from a husband of a friend of mine who died by in 1994. She had a drawer full of recipes that she had cut and saved from magazines and such. I hung on to them too and now I'll upload a few on here for everyone to enjoy. So another recipe in memory of a friend. Dana Renner
