To tell the truth, I'm not a "chocoholic". I enjoy fruit desserts and custards more than anything. So my brownies have neither milk nor dark chocolate—but still satisfy every sweet tooth.
Though my husband and I live in a townhouse, I grow lots of vegetables...in containers on our back deck!
This recipe has been treasured and passed down in our family for years. It came from my Aunt Clara, whose cooking was a blend of her country and rural French roots. I can always depend on everyone being home to eat-and on time-whenever I make this for dessert.
I was inspired to make these cookies last year when we stopped for a snack while Christmas shopping. I changed a few things when I got home, and my Fudge Puddles became a favorite with my husband's family. —Kimarie Maassen, Avoca, Iowa
My mother-in-law gave me this recipe before my wedding (six children ago!). I've made mocha balls nearly every Christmas since then. Because they freeze so well, I bake some early and put them away to call on as last-minute holiday treats. —Jeana Crowell, Whitewater, KS
Fixing desserts is my favorite kind of cooking. I usually make these cookies for Christmas—their pale-white adds a special touch to all the reds and greens.
We—my husband, our daughter (6) and I—live on a real dirt road! I'm a full-time wife and mother. Our second child's due to join us in mid-January.
When I take this different kind of angel food cake to church bake sales, it goes before I can get it on the table!
I've always enjoyed cooking, especially baking. My other hobbies are embroidery, counted cross-stitch and taking care of my flowers and garden (I love to can). My husband and I are retired to our farm home; we have three sons, all grown, and four grandchildren.
Our children don't have a lunch program at their school. So, once a month, another lady and I volunteer to cook a hot meal for all 150 students. And, since the teachers don't have a break in their schedules, twice a month we also make lunch for them—and sometimes prepare Milky Way Ice Cream for dessert!
Every family has its traditions. We serve homemade ice cream for birthdays. I'm constantly looking for new recipes—that's how I found this one.
