RECIPE BACKSTORY
Early in my marriage an older neighbor gave me some Southern Living magazines, one with wonderful holiday recipes like this coffee. It has been a part of my cozy cold weather days at home and work since then. Thanks, Mrs. Conn from Missouri, whoever you are, for sharing with Southern Living.
