Meet the Cook: The reason this is such a favorite is it's a little different yet quick and easy. At one time, my husband was a mess sergeant in the National Guard. When it came to cooking, there was always a little discussion over doing it my way or the Army way! We have four grown children and five grandchildren. -Alyce Kafka, Wagner, South Dakota
