Meet the Cook: Both my husband and I were raised on farms, and we prefer home cooking to eating out. That works out fine since I love trying new recipes! I've served this treat as an appetizer and a snack. Plus, it's sweet enough to be a dessert. It's easy to transport besides. We have a 9-year-old daughter. -Carolyn Brinkmeyer, Aurora, Colorado
