This is an old recipe--one of my Grandma's. I thought I would put it on Zaar for other people to enjoy, and to make sure I don't lose it.

FloridaGrl and all: This is not an old recipe of her Grandmas. It came off a protective cover for Southern Living Magazine several years ago. I know because I have it in my cookbook. Please do not claim others recipes for your own. BTW: It is very good. I wouldnt expect otherwise from Southern Living.
