Being a military wife for over twenty years, I had to entertain a lot. It was so much fun, and I really enjoyed it. Some of the recipes I am posting are things that I used to make and some are recipe clubs that I signed up for. Now that I don't entertain a lot or work, as I am retired, I am enjoying sharing them with you. This is a family favorite. Hope you enjoy
