Personal Notes:
I think that Mom got this recipe from our cousin Barb Hanson Olson. Barb and here husband George lived in Minneapolis with their 3 children Lynn, Suzanne, and Craig. I remember visiting Minneapolis when I was very young while Uncle Frank Hanson and his wife Alice, Barb's parents, still lived there. Eventually Uncle Frank and Auntie Alice moved to Apache Junction, Arizona where they retired in the 1960's. Over the years I have lost touch with Barb Hanson and her brother Jerry. I know that Barb divorced and remarried many years ago.
