I don't live in the country, but I love everything about itespecially good old-fashioned home cooking! Every year, you'll find me at our County Fair, entering a different recipe contest. I find new recipes everywhereespecially in my large cookbook collection. This toffee, however, comes from the "heart". It's been a favorite in my family since I was a little girl!
Chock-full of colorful cherries and almonds, this fast-to-fix candy is a Christmas tradition at Rita Goshaw's home in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "It's one of my family's favorite munchies while decorating the tree and wrapping presents, she comments.
With a hint of apple and cinnamon, this jelly spreads cheer from breads to bagels to muffins. Its rosy pink color looks lovely blushing through the food jars I save and decorate with fabric-covered lids. —Betsy Porter, Bismarck, North Dakota
Meet the Cook: We like to do things BIG here in Texas, so don't expect a dainty little barely-a-bite truffle from the surprising recipe. Folks are delighted to discover a big fluffy marshmallow inside the chocolate and nut coating.
