This recipe has been in my family for at least two generations. When I was a teen, a friend came for supper. She loved this recipe so my mom made it. We were all eating and talking. When she was done she lifted her plate up to her face and started licking it. We all stopped and stared. I still do not let her forget that! ~ Sheri L.
