My step-grandmother Ruth Huffman passed away years ago at Easter time. This was a recipe that she would make for Easter dinner. It is one of my favorite things to bring to a family gathering. It is always a big hit and you never have to worry about any leftovers! This picture is an old one of Ruth, Krista, Heath and Granddaddy in front of Granddaddy's house in Dubach.
