I may not be the worlds best cook, but I certainly appreciate good healthy food. My favorites are those made with Oregon grown fruits and vegetables, dairy products, and grains. This is a recipe from my Great Grandmother, which has been handed down through four generations. Governor John A. Kitzhaber, Oregon --
