“I learned how to cook from my Mother, Grandmother, and Grandfather,” said Ted Roy, owner of the Water Street Cafe. He smiled, and with slight glimmer in his eye, asked, “Does that count?” As a daughter who watched my grandmother make donuts at Howard’s Restaurant in Colebrook, New Hampshire, as well as learning from my mother, I knew exactly what Ted was talking about. Yes, learning how to cook from our family members certainly counts Ted!
The weather took a turn recently. It was a warm and a balmy 45* out. I wanted to celebrate the warmer temperatures. I wanted something that would remind me of a tropical vacation.

Fact: I want to eat these crazy circus cookies all day long. Fact: The short winter days filled with nothing but grey are getting a bit tiresome.

I will be happy to see you again!
