Meet the Cook: Here in the High Sierras, my husband and I operate a small bed and breakfast inn. I like serving this drink to winter guests as they warm up in front of our stone fireplace - it's a favorite with everyone for its heavenly scent! It's also a standby when we host local groups, who frequently meet at our place. I learned to cook from my mother. I have been at it since I was a girl. My husband and I have six grown children and a total of 11 grandchildren. -Marlene Cartwright, Sierra City, California
