I have TOO many recipes written down on pieces of paper here and there and everywhere, so I am putting them all here. This is one of those MANY recipes. I know it was a "newsletter" recipe, I just can't remember which one....I didn't print that part. Maybe, with all of my recipes in one place they will get made and not forgotten about.
