Personal Notes:
This recipe entered our family around 1971. Rita and I were going to cook some desserts and side dishes for Thanksgiving. Rita and I found the Carrot Cake recipe and the Pecan Pie recipe in "Dear Abby" column published in the Birmingham News. Both were hits and we still serve them to this day!
