NOTE: This recipe comes from a lovely new cookbook I bought at a Purim carnival. Called MAMA COOKS CARLIFORNIA STYLE (New Twists on Jewish Classics) it can be bought from the Jewish Home for the Aging, 7150 Tampa Ave, Reseda CA 91335 (phone: 818-774-336 or FAX 818-342-0881), Cost is $23.95 plus tax and shipping and it all goes to a good cause. No, I'm not getting a kickback...but what a nice organization to support.
