Personal Notes:
Ruth Lyons became a friend to thousands of housewives in their homes through her TV talk show at noon every day. I can imagine how Grandma appreciated The Ruth Lyons' Show when she lived alone after Grandpa died. I can see in my mind Grandma in her favorite chair copying this recipe as Ruth shared it.
