- PERSONAL NOTE: I found this recipe in a notebook that was handwritten by my husband's grandmother. His Aunt Shirley graciously assigned me the "guardian" of this family treasure. It has given me much inspiration in the kitchen through the years and reminds me of Mom-mom Bessie whenever I use it. It's my way of keeping her beside me when I cook.
