My maternal grandmother, Nana, always said she wasn't a very good cook. If that was true how come everything that she made was SOOO good? That question has had me scratching my head all my life! Now I've just put it in my 'oh well, that's just the way things were' file, and enjoy the many wonderful things that she cooked and passed down to me. Hope you enjoy this one and let me know what you think.
