I received this recipe from a friend and with a few tweaks over the years, I have perfected it so much that now even my husband can get out the recipe and make this one. My now-grown children have called and asked for this recipe and I think this one is officially one of those that will be passed down through the family. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
