A lot of people make fun of pumpkin spice aficionados on Twitter, but I love it. I just saw a recipe for pumpkin sugar cookies on Pinterest. I've also been thinking of the first things I cooked. The very first was a simple dessert from a kids' Betty Crocker cookbook with a red-and-white cover. You just bought some biscuits, twisted them into figure eights, dipped them in a mixture of butter, cinnamon and sugar, and cooked them a bit. They were very good. My first real "meal" was potatoes Anna, from a potato-themed cookbook that I've lost track of.
