About this Cook
Retired, mother of two, grandmother of four plus several step-grandchildren and lots of in-laws.
My favorite things to cook
Recipes scaled for one or two.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Rutabaga at holiday gatherings, Christmas mice made from maraschino cherries and candy kisses, Christmas eggs (these are the same as Easter eggs, but ball-shaped), Peanut butter daisy cookies at pool parties.
My cooking triumphs
Had a few flubs when son-in-law was new, and got teased about it. Then when I made a cherry cheese braid and he ate some he asked where I bought it and I had to make another right in front of him. Now he wants it often.

Mexican Wedding Cookies
I first made these in high school in 1957. We used chopped cashews and rolled them into small balls about 1" in diameter. As far as whether to coat them with powdered sugar when warm or when cooled, we did both! We rolled them while warm then let them cool and rolled them again. These are one of my faVORITE COOKIES.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
