  • After watching coverage of the Olympics in London, I was in the mood to cook something British.

    I decided, after hearing it mentioned in a couple episodes of “Doctor Who,” to make Jammie Dodgers.

    Jammie Dodgers are the brand name for a British biscuit, or cookies as we call it, made from shortbread and raspberry jam. They also are known as jam sandwich cookies.

  • As we near the end of our alphabetical tour of fruits and vegetables, I remember all the neat recipes I have found. This week is no exception, with watermelon and water chestnuts.

    I love watermelon whether it is red, yellow or pink; seeded or seedless. And I never would have imagined the recipes I have for you — a watermelon drink, a watermelon salad and even a smoothie and frozen pops made from watermelon. They are very interesting choices. I already have tried one of the watermelon salads and it was quite tasty.
