For over 10 years even coming up to 20 years this recipe has been in our family.

It is especially made in the summertime to bring to BBQ’s, parties, to the beach, poolside, you name it, it’s a hit!

I decided a few years ago to lighten it up because there was a lot of oil and sugar in the original recipe and that was a no go when I was on my weight loss journey,

I have made it healthier and super calorie and WW friendly.
