    all look so delicious, but I am at an age that simple is the way to go… My great granddaughter made the most delicious cookies and I told her I had to have the recipe,, it was a box of cake mix, and 2 eggs and about 1/2 cup of oil, butter or margarine. . No liquid..sometimes adding a little sugar to it… they were hold together cookies, firm enough to pick up and enjoy.. adding chocolate chips or bits of nuts or even crumbled pretzels to taste like walnuts… I enjoyed making cookies when the kids were young but now they eat whatever I serve, so make it easier and cheaper for me… always keep cake boxes in the pantry…
    At Christmas time I made my version of mincemeat loaves… carrot cake mix and a container of the fruit mix for mincemeat , made loads of tiny loaves and wrapped and gave to the Federalies and the military on the road down into Mexico.. would go thru the check points and then pull forward and get out and motion for them to come to me,
    giving cookies to the feds and military boys in enough containers so as to make their holiday a little better, pie tins fit well in the popcorn metal containers,using one with the treats and then an upside down one over it, over and over till the containers are full.
    i drove down into Mexico every other month to give to the wonderful people there, filled my old Baja ’88 BRONCO ford.. and stacked 3 foot above the top, shoes,clothes, bedding and anything else I could find used and useful . Did this till about 6 years ago when my health was wearing me out..from 2005 I used the 95 3/4 ton GMC… long bed carried much more. would fill the camper so tight that there was no more room even cramming into the oven and bathroom of it… open door and the goodies in plastic garbage bags would flow out… The border guards would pass me thru, someone always at the border remembered me, and checking my load would take them hours and hours… The long drive with my massive Malamute /German shepherd, solid black was a treat for the boys and men as they wanted to know if they could touch him or would he bite off their arm, Bubba was my companion on the trips, and the kids would line up and one by one would come and pet the El Lobo, Dogs, don’t grow that big down there…
