Personal Notes:
This was one of my grandmother's best recipes and was enjoyed at many family gatherings over the years. Granny Mier ( for whom I was named - Dena) always served it from her buffet in her dining room. I am proud to say that I now have that very piece of furniture and will one day pass it on to one of you.
