This is my favorite pancake recipe. My boys always tell me how good they are!
These are Mom’s spicy meatballs, as best as she remembered. You can adjust the spiciness to suite your tastes. I usually use 5-6 jalapeno’s, sliced, and 3-4 habenero’s quartered with the membrane’s and seeds removed from half.
This is mom’s recipe for spritz cookies. I have it in my recipe box in Barbie’s elementary school cursive. So cute!

Here’s the recipe mom always used to make streussel. And she was the best at making it! It was always sooo good.

This is mom’s recipe for cream puff shells. They are surprisingly easy to make. I usually fill them with vanilla pudding and frost with chocolate glaze. Enjoy! Linda
