Sr. Kay, friend, guest, and frequent contributor to Honeycooks, gave us this recipe. She in turn received it from Rev. Glenda Hope, Presbyterian minister and founder of San Francisco Network Ministries which serves the people of the Tenderloin District providing affordable housing, vocational training, and a safe house for women as well as HIV/AIDS pastoral care. You can find out more about Rev. Glenda’s ministries at
