  1. I found my old copy of Ann Criswell’s recipes in the Chronicle Sept. 13, 1970. My copy is very tattered, and I cut out some recipes. I cannot locate the page that had cocktail meatballs. Do you happen to have that recipe? Thank you so much!

  2. Oh, Nancy we would love that. Chicago is just a short drive for us and they have some great restaurants…….yum! I told Dick about your blog and how much I had enjoyed it. It made my day yesterday………it is up beat and funny and was a joy to read.


  3. Yes, I am. I always love to talk with you and I hadn’t realized it had been so long since I had been to Texas until recently. I have been wanting Dick to come, but his health is so up and down that I never know when he is going to be good enough to travel. Maybe we will make it this fall would love to see everyone again.


  4. Nancy,

    I love your blog. I am know as the “Queen” of three and four ingredient cooking so it was fun to read your recipes. However any recipe with more than four ingredients I never try. I am great with anything with Cream of Mushroom Soup in it. Keep on cooking and writing it is a real treat for me to read them.


    • Hi Jo! So glad you found my blog. My next 3 or 4 ingredient recipe will be dedicated to you! By the way — aren’t you overdue for a trip to Houston?

I'd love to hear from you!
