This recipe comes from my recipe box and from my mother's heart. My mother loved to entertain, loved to cook and had a huge helping of the gift of hospitality! Her own recipe box overflowed with timeless recipes from her own mother and many of the people she met throughout her life's journey. Though she is gone now, my family can still savor her sweet spirit when I share her best recipes with my own family and friends.
