This month, we want to give you a recipe from Dorothy Vecera, a resident at our community.

The recipe is called Dorothy’s Delish Dish. Dorothy said that it is called Delish Dish because it is just that “delicious!”

This recipe is special to her, and she wanted to share it with us all. Dorothy recalled making this dish for the first time, and all of them fell in love with it. That meant a lot, Dorothy says, because her family never holds back.

Although it takes time to prepare, it’s definitely worth it, Dorothy promises. It’s also a perfect dish to prepare for company.

Here’s all you need to know to prepare Dorothy’s Delish Dish. Enjoy!
