Where to begin...from one good cook to another...there are a lot of recipes and so many to chose from that narrowing it down to just one or two wouldn't be easy. Everyone loves a home made egg noodle with a good sauce and a splash of red wine with beef and a splash of white wine with chicken and not just for the one who's doing the cooking. I marinate my steaks with a simple can of beer and steak seasoning. I love my barbeque grill just as much as my oven...as long as you don't over cook it. Maybe that's why I like to do the grilling. I am a perfectionist and a good split chicken marinated in a Italian dressing is just as tasty as a rib eye steak coming off the grill. My mother had us kids in the kitchen since I was knee high helping make christmas candy.We made everything from Spanish peanut brittle to divinity along with peanut butter bon-bons that we called mudballs. Putting sprinkles on fresh baked sugar cookies.My favorite was the salt water taffy and her famous black walnut fudge and penuche.We can't forget the home made caramels with pecans.I loved making the sugar candy called windowpane in many different flavors such as peppermint,anise,cinnamon and butterscotch and last year we even tried bubblegum flavor..We dipped pretzels in white and choclate almond bark before you could even buy them in a grocery store and then with the left over almond bark we add rice krispies and peppermint flavoring.Well from my kitchen to yours...happy holidays and may your candy never scorch or burn. Ms.Donna Joy Plattner

I have been cooking and baking in the kitchen since I don't remember. My mother taught me all about candy making and I have handed down that tradition to my daughter.I consider myself a good cook and I love to experiment with new recipes.You always know that there is something tasty in my kitchen and as for which is my favorite recipe I would always tell you that the home-made candies that my mother taught me to make will always be my favorite.
