"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
I can't remember ever having a Christmas without them. I remember making them with my mom and I could only get the first 2 or 3 cups of rice krispies stirred in before I needed help. Then I remember making them for the first time all by myself (as an adult, I think!) and having to really work hard to get all 6 cups stirred in. It really impressed me that my mom could do it! :) Now Drew helps makes these and has the same troubles I used to! I've even made these with my class at school because I can do it without an oven. They are so quick, so easy, and so yummy!
