Lots of kids and singles at First Baptist in Pensacola called her Mama Meacham. We called her Lawren. We immediately became friends after she and Joan visited us, encouraging us to move our membership to First Baptist. This is just one of the recipes that Lawren shared with me through the years. I'm sure it's available in lots of cookbooks, but it's special to me because she wrote it out for me. So . . . to me, it's her recipe. Very, very yummy!

Fresh whipped cream is so much better than the stuff you buy in a tub or a can and so easy to make. We prefer to sweeten our whipped cream...
