This recipe has been a family favorite since I was a little girl...(and that has been a while). My mother used to make it special for my brother-in-law when he and my sister would come home for holidays. He thought she was a sensational cook...and she was! I am submitting this recipe in the contest in her memory. We miss you Mom and Dad...
