Lea VaughnThis is another winning recipe I submitted to the “No Cook” recipe contest back in 1966 at WDAN Radio.  Larry wanted me to get some recipes in early so they could tell about some of the entries to encourage others to get their recipes in.  No one knew the judges would like my recipes best!
