    I’ll have to try those this weekend. I made the brownies not long ago and they were pretty yummy. There are some other recipes we have tried that I keep meaning to tell you about but you were in Delaware and beyond that I just keep forgetting. Fabulous cookbook, thanks. love you.

    • Thanks for checking in. I’d love for you to let me know the recipes you’ve tried. Yesterday, we had the chicken and dumplings and it was delicious. I love the cookbook, as well. Everything I’ve tried has been a winner. Love you, Mom
