Comfort, Comfort, Comfort! This is what homecooking, bellywarming is all about. LOVED this. No kidding, each spoonful filled my soul. We all liked it so much. The recipe may seem long, but like most things, if you plan, it's a breeze. Thank you, Dee, for sharing. Made it for The AmaZ'ing Race 2023 and What's on the Menu tag games.
