This is an original family recipe as many of my posts are. This is my Grandma Schmidt's creation. She immigrated from Saxony, East Germany before world war II. Her Atlantic Ocean passage was sponsored by Apostle Henry D. Moyle. She was what you might call an "indentured servant." She went to work for the Moyle family as cook, housekeeper, child care assistant to work off the money lent to her for the journey to America! 

I can not help but think of her and her stories about bear encounters in Island Park as a newlywed living in a tent on the Snake River or Monster the cat when I make her incredibly delectable recipes.
