My mother made this a few years ago for our Christmas family get-together and we've had it at every get-together since then. I am also required to bring it to our company's Thanksgiving Potluck because everyone loves it. It's very creamy and rich and VERY easy to make. (I'll add a picture in a few days. We're having this for Father's Day.)
