This Classic Recipe from my granny Jones was always a welcome surprise when I would go to her house to muck her 2 large chicken coops in southern Oklahoma. I actually couldn’t stand raisins cooked in any dish( a texture thing I suppose) but when she raised her kitchen windows to let the air cool of the house after baking these rough round delicacies, the raisins added to the aroma of the cookie dough and was carried by the breeze all the way out to the coops; so strong was the aroma , the smell of the mucking was forgotten, and I dug in and worked even harder, anticipating eating them with a fresh glass of milk. Yes! , Milk cows in the barn across the road at Aunt Gerties, I didn’t waste any time. As soon as I laid fresh straw down, I immediately jumped on my bike and rode over to aunt Gerties to get a gallon of fresh milk. I ran in excitedly “Gertie I need to milk a cow, Granny has fresh cookies made,” Ok “she said,” I reckon they are ready to be milked”. I lined 2 cows up I thought looked full, Of course I had my favorites. When you grow up on farms and milk cows, you get to where you know exactly which cow, you are drinking milk from. I cleaned off the teats and started milking, occasionally scratching just inside the pit of her leg, the milk seemed to flow easier as I tugged on her. A little bend up to squirt a mouthful up to me as a bonus, she would not mind. After I finished milking, I carried the buckets up to Gertie so she could transfer them to gallon jars. Usually a gallon was a dollar with a jar returned, But I milked the cows and got my gallon free! Man! I could not wait I put the gallon jar in the basket on the back of my bike. Gertie would always give me an old flower sack to wrap around it so the bouncing wouldn’t crack her jars. I was a speed demon getting to those fresh cookies. I would ride back, pull up to the back gate, grab the jar of milk and run inside the back door. Granny with her big smile. “Where did you go? “Granny I could smell those cookies out there in the coop I was cleaning and I didn’t want to take the chance of you being out of milk, so I rode over to Gerties and milked her cows and got a free gallon of milk! “I replied. Then like magic she opened the oven door and pulled out this huge stack of cookies, She placed them right in front of me and tossed me the flower sack in case I needed to wipe the milk of my face, then a big glass of warm 1000%whole milk! I was standing in high cotton! I thought the world was mine and it was, according to granny. I sorted out the raisins in my mouth then sucked the juice out of them before chewing them up. I was not about to tell Granny I did not want raisins. Beggars cannot be choosers. Right!

Do you know how much sugar you should be limited to each day? For women, the magic number is just 30 grams, which is around six teaspoons and for men, it's 45 grams or nine teaspoons.

Heart health is often the last thing we think of – we are generally so focused on preventing cancer, and keeping our eyes peeled for the symptoms of diabetes we forget about the major organ that is pumping blood and keeping us alive. These diets are the right fit for anyone who is looking to improve their heart health or looking to be proactive about it.
As a rule, New Year’s resolutions are notoriously prone to failure. Every year, so many of us set goals for ourselves with great intention, only to find them unfulfilled when the end of December rolls around. For whatever reason, the fiery motivation and enthusiasm felt in January begins to wane and we fall off the wagon.
