After the 2011 CITR Retreat, I was bound and determined to make cheese.

After she passed away, I dug through her recipes and decided to try these. I couldn’t believe… Read More
My MIL made the only thing I actually liked using the old fashioned citron fruit mix – a very soft cookie. Not a bar, just a regular cookie. Not particularly spicy, and more sponge cake like than a normal cookie. For some reason, the citron tasted good in this particular cookie. Other than in this... Read More
