My Mom always cooked in her slippers. Still does. Coming home from work it was
a natural transition for her to take off her work shoes and put on her slippers
before doing even more work! Our Moms work hard, and on this Mothers
Day 2007 I/we say - Thank you Mom! The following recipe is my family favorite.
