Tucker McBride

Return to a time when a boy could be a boy; when life was more clear from the top branch of a tree; when a kid could trade anger and disappointment for action and adventure; when the whole neighborhood was his playground; and the sloppy kiss from a dog could make everything right.

Make it Your Own

Gramma decided to use a Hot Cross Bun recipe to make some special dinner rolls. However, she changed the recipe a little. 

It's fun to make a recipe your own just like Gramma did. You can even take the simplest recipe and change it a little. A roll of packaged biscuits can be iced with your favorite icing. Or, you could sprinkle a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. You could melt mint chips on top of break-apart chocolate chip cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. Chop up some bananas and dip the chunks in chocolate. Apple pieces slathered with peanut butter are good.

Gramma knew some in the family didn't like raisins. So, she used another dried fruit in place of the raisins. She cut some dried pineapple into small pieces, the size of raisins. Rather than crosses on the top like she'd make at Easter, she iced them with pineapple icing. The recipe will be in Tucker book-three, Tucker McBride's Perfect Day.

Now it's your turn. Change a favorite recipe and make it your own.
