"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Personal Notes:
This is a dish that my Mother-in-law, Mrs. Letha McQueen, prepared for her grandchildren. It was a quick way to give them a treat, yet give them something wholesome when she baby sat. Mrs. McQueen, affectionately called "China" by her family and close friends, was a very quiet spiritual women. She passed away on March 21, 2007 at the age of 94. As the family recalled special memories and times, everyone agreed that they would miss her "tater bread". As I never saw a recipe, but often observed her preparing this dish, this recipe included in this cookbook is my way to give honor to a "Special Women". She was a honorable Mother, Grandmother, and Mother-in-law.
