This recipe is courtesy of my mom. Today, my parents are celebrating 45 years of marriage.
My mom was a rock for me when I had to go dairy free. She was searching out recipes & trying them and sharing with me. It’s amazing that I didn’t gain weight. This recipe was one she found in a cook book from the 1940’s, when some foods were rationed during World War II. Originally called Food of The Gods, my mother didn’t care for that name, so she changed it to FOG.
In celebration of my parent’s anniversary & my mom’s support in my DF journey, I’m sharing this today. I hope you enjoy it.
