Well, I must admit…

This is another one of the pirated recipes from my mother’s blessed recipe binder, which she accidentally left at my house a couple of years ago. And when I returned the binder, a few loose handwritten recipe cards that were tucked in the interior pockets, by some miracle fell on the floor.
