Welcome to In The Kitchen with Sharon!

This week, I have Mary K. Stoermer from Evansville, Ind. in the kitchen with me.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mary K. at Smokin’ in the Hills at Rocky Fork Lake two years ago, and we became instant friends. We share things on Facebook and Messenger all year until it’s time for the next Smokin’ in the Hills and we can catch up.

This year, Mary brought me a cookbook she made for her church, and I’m having so much fun with all the great recipes.

Mary says this recipe is from her grandmother. Thank you, Mary K., for sharing this wonderful recipe! I know it will be something special. I am definitely going to make this…
