After loosing my home in the April 27th tornado in Cullman, AL. I found a couple of handwritten recipes inside a highschool annual. I used to work with Maveline Higdon, she was a fantastic cook, this is her recipe. We worked together in the 80's nursing. She always brought the best dishes to our get togethers. A fantastic lady. Dedicated to you Maveline, my beautiful, precious friend, great co worker and a fantastic cook.
