Some years ago, I lost all of my favorite recipes in a house fire. They were still in my grandma's recipe box at the home I grew up in. I found this recipe, a little scorched, in the rubble of my childhood home. I made it last year for Thanksgiving. It was a HIT!! Thanks Grandma ... I miss you. I dedicate this recipe to my grandma, Iva Spencer, who left us in 2001. Love you Grandma!!
