My husband, Steve, cooks this for me as a special meal. I wanted this to be the first recipe shared on Knitting Savant so he put together this post.
My mother, Rosemary aka “Rosie” was a phenomenal cook. Growing up, she would prepare suppers that would make
me forget McDonald’s existed. Many great memories were made at suppertime with my dad and sisters. Mom got this recipe from a friend of hers, Marguerite Fanning. This dish was one of my favorites…especially scrumptious on a cold, winter’s day!
