Our recipe this week is from Betty Pyles, who established a homesite in Birchwood with her husband, Max, in 1955. Betty was very active in the community. She was involved in the Birchwood Loopers Homemakers Club, the Chugiak Ladies Club, the WSCS of the Chugiak Methodist Church and was one of the dancers in the Chugiak Belles Troupe. Her recipe was published in the Kink Arm Courier in April, 1962.
