This dish was brought to our family by the women of our church in a time of need. It was such a warm and delicious comfort food. I asked for the recipe and was surpised to find out how wonderfully easy it is to prepare. I still make this at various times thoughout the year. It's great on cold winter days. Family members ASK for me to make it for them when they are sick as well. I usually double the recipe and have leftovers to have for the next day or so. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!
