Years ago, we were without electricity for nine days during an ice storm, but I was able run the slow cooker from our generator. The situation called for a treat, and this has been a favorite ever since.

    ""Delicious!!!" That's the best word to describe this recipe. Being able to make it in the slow cooker was great idea. The only thing I changed well added was a little nutmeg."

    "This was a big hit with the family at Christmas.

    it is now requested for every family gathering we have big or small.I used half & half instead of the heavy cream and it still turned out great"
