It’s grandparents day. I know it’s such a torture to post this recipe as grandparents should go on a diet and shouldn’t eat this full-of-cholesterol food. But, let this serve as a tribute to my mom, who is a grandmother to four little naughty girls. Despite I cook this one, she was the one who taught me.
To my mom and dad, I love you…
