Were you curious about those old-fashioned recipes mentioned in Cynthia's review of Dinners on a Dime yesterday? Well, we can't be sure, but we're betting this one will bring back sweet memories for everyone!
Sent to us by Darwin McCurry of Pueblo, Colorado, the recipe was originally named for his mother, who made this delicious (and economical!) treat every week during the Depression. Darwin says he still makes it about once a month...his kids and grandkids make it too!
Four generations can't be wrong...this one's a keeper.
