Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from Lawrence DeWees. He was the drilling superintendent when I worked for Rowan in high school. It was his Mother's recipe. I used to love to sit and listen to his stories. He had been a prisoner of war in World War II. I believe he was captured by the German's in Africa, if I remember correctly.
