So, this recipe actually came from my mother’s aunt, Aunt Alice. But I call it “Mom’s recipe” and my kids call it “Mom’s recipe” too, because it is mine too. I can still remember meeting my Great Aunt Alice. She lived in a little white house across from Grandpa Max’s house and she had a purple beauty mark on her bottom lip. (Isn’t funny what stands out to little kids?)

More about Aunt Alice to come. (Here is what I know about her so far.)
