Meet the Cook: It's fun to watch the expressions of people when they taste this. The first bite is both sweet and tart!
I made many one-dish, top-of-the-stove meals while raisins three children. After I'd worked all day, there was always something to do at home. That didn't leave much time to cook!
My children all have families of their own now. They live near, and I still enjoy cooking for them - and for my three grandchildren.

Meet the Cook: With these, I like being able to serve a complete breakfast inside a tidy pocket of dough. Just add fresh fruit, juice or fruit-flavored gelatin on the side.
