My mother and I have been making this dish together since I was a little girl. Her mother taught her to make it, and my mother taught me to make it. She would put me on a chair next to her and help me measure all of the ingredients and mix them together. She always made it extra fun and cheered me on while we made this dinner for the family. She made it seem that I was a big girl making the dish all by myself. This recipe is outstanding... I could eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner. When I have children, I will also teach them how to make this dish. I am hoping to pass this recipe on from generation to generation. Please enjoy!
