I received the most wonderful gift from my Dad Donald "Kub" Kubberness, most people wouldn't think so unless they were a genealogy buff, like I most diffidently am.
He gave me a recipe book called Rebeccah Circle 1972 a group of women from United Methodist Church of Arlington, South Dakota.
It's filled with recipes from family members!!!!! Can you believe that! I was so surprised and excited. So here is my first recipe from the book by my Great- Aunt Bessie Converse-Damm.
