Personal Notes:
From a very young age of 18 months, David started helping his mom cooking in the kitchen. This is a recipe one of his friend's parents brought with them one weekend while he was attending Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. They placed the casserole in the dorm refrigerator to bake the next day and the next morning it was gone! So he knew this had to be a good recipe if someone took it. When he came home he made it and it became a family favorite. it's been made for many church breakfasts, Christmas mornings and other special meals.
