Hildreth is where I grew up, so naturally where I begin my tour. This is the place that I will forever call home. The place that made me a proud Nebraska girl for life. Home.

The recipe comes from Hildreth’s Centennial Cookbook (pictured below). I’m sure I’ve tried this as a child at a church picnic, but it was tasty again as an adult here at home. And my daughter LOVED it. 🙂
