Yumm-o to our tumm-o!You know when you come across an old recipe box; you are bound to find some treasures. This recipe box was no exception. Our friend Maurice was kind enough to share with the sister’s some of his mother’s recipes, which we were so thankful for. We tried this recipe and added a few of the sister’s touches to it and found it to be a must have when serving steak or seafood. It is rich and so very good!
