It's time to share another recipe! This one is a favorite in our family. My aunt made a big batch for us when my Mom passed away, and we've all been making it since then.
It can be made quite quickly and is really good. I've made it several times for people who are recuperating from an illness or surgery and often am asked for the recipe.
I've also thrown it in the crockpot and taken it to work for potlucks.
