“This is a recipe that my mom used to make when I was growning up and she got it from a neighbor of ours...I've not made it in a while but it was quite tasty and I look forward to trying it again. I've made some fat / calorie reducing changes. The original recipe was marked "American Heritage Cookbook".”
