Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was my husband Douglas's recipe, which he made numerous times. He loved sill and it probably brought back memories of his life in West Haven. Edith's notes: My mother always prepared sill for Christmas. Doug also fixed sill, but I always buy it, most recently at IKEA in New Haven, CT. Douglas was the greatest brother ever! He was smart, caring, industrious, creative, patriotic, organized, family oriented, loving, and certainly carried the "family gene" for list making. His Air Force Research and Development position ( project manager for F15, F16 fighter planes and the Stealth Bombers ) certainly contributed to the security of the USA. We all loved him very much and miss him everyday.
