Okay... this recipe is NOT one we would be served at Grandma and Grandpa's place but it's great if you're hungry and in a hurry...

It seems that a lot of my memories of Grandma and Grandpa involve food… testimony to my ever expanding waistline and seemingly appropriate memories for a family cookbook, huh?

I’m sure most of the cousins shared the same experiences as we did as kids and, who knows, we might have experienced some of them together. I know my little brother and I did and I distinctly remember cousin John and I scarfing down as many donut holes as we could fit in our pre-adolescent mouths.

How about this... climbing up on one of the chairs next to the window in Grandma’s kitchen and opening the upper left hand cabinet door to find a stick of Juicy Fruit gum or sneaking a sugar cube. Or, taking out one of those huge (at least they seemed huge to a 7 year old kid) clear jars with the screw top lid, unscrewing the top and reaching in for one of Grandma’s cookies with the chocolate in the middle and the walnut on top… I lived for those cookies! Sitting in the kitchen with big cousin Mike and dipping Grandma’s home made doughnuts into coffee spiked with lots of sugar and whole milk. Do you remember grabbing an ice cold Orange Crush out of the refrigerator and heading out to the backyard to climb that huge chestnut tree? Ahhh… life’s simple pleasures.
