- This recipe was submitted to the family cookbook in 1995, by my aunt Della Marie Mertz Bown. Aunt Della is my Mom's oldest sibling, she is currently 82 years young. She was born in Cardston, Alberta, Canada. She has an amazing life story, and I wish I could do it justice here. Let me just tell you that she has raised a beautiful family. She worked in the BYU athletic department as executive secretary to the dean for years and years. Uncle Keith passed in 1994, but she has not slowed down a bit. She has been to China, sailed the Nile, been on every continent and visited every clime. She is an avid doll collector & maker, and has dolls from all over the world. She also collects clocks. She has been highly involved in the local Senior’s Club, and is a patron and lover of the arts, especially at BYU. She still bakes her own bread, and brings a hot loaf over to my Dad frequently. Aunt Dell was raised on Bread and Coulee Water. I love you Aunt Dell!
