This is my mother law Barbara's recipe and today I am attempting it for the first time. For twenty years I have had it at every family dinner and it will be hard to live up to how good she makes it....but I am trying today. My son says he will not be eating it...because it is not grandmas. But then I saw him peek in the oven:) ...well see!
