After we had lived here about 5 years my Aunt Joan and her daughter Cheryl and her family moved about 45 minutes south of us. Her sister Gail soon followed with her family. We went from having no family in the area and being 'holiday orphans' to having family that we love to visit, play games, eat, and do many things with. It has been a great blessing. It also helps that Cheryl is a great cook. This is a recipe that she prepares for holiday gatherings.
