Another One Of My Favorite Holiday Dish Recipes

This recipe has become one of my favorite holiday dishes to make. Unfortunately I came to know this recipe following one of the most terrible times in my life, after the death of my Mama in 2008. As you know, in the South, friends and family smother you with food when someone dies. It’s their way of saying “ we love you”, “ we care about you”,  “ we hurt for you”… now eat something. It’s how the term COMFORT FOOD came in to existence. This recipe came from Sister Baker, she was my sister Jeana’s best friend.  At my sister’s church they call everyone “ Sister ______ or Brother ______” so I call her that too.  This dish is more of a casserole than it is a bread. It’s very rich and very tasty. Don’t panic if you don’t like cottage cheese. You can’t even taste it, it just makes the bread super moist.  My husband Jeff says it’s like dessert. Then again, he thinks all bread is dessert. I hope you like it. And just so you know, I don’t get sad when I make it, I actually feel really loved because I remember all of the people who came to my parents house to comfort us.
