Mother Connie is a fan of “Kitchen Daily“- partly because they offer quotes that make me smile. They also have tremendously tasty recipes and I want to share one of those with you. It seems that Kitchen Daily got this recipe from “May I Have That Recipe”…there is so much information on the web it is mind boggling!
