This is the same recipe my great-grandma, grandma, and mom have used. I lost my copy and am so glad to have found it. I follow this recipe exactly but flatten just slightly....I like mine slightly puffy. For my dad, I press with a glass dipped in sugar. He likes his Gingersnaps thin and crispy. Thanks Marie!

These pork chops were delicious and easy to make after a busy day at work. Well, actually, I put my chops in a glass pan over night with onions and sliced garlic and salt and pepper . This saved me a sted the next day. When I got home from work I browned the chops, sauted the onions anad garlic and then pour the soup over and baked about 30 minutes. They were very tender but also very salty. Next time I won't add any extra salt, and I'll continue to leave out the milk and water. Perfect over rice! Garlic added that little extra umph.

Emily's Famous Marshmallows

A very thoughtful friend gave me a box of handcut marshmallows from Williams-Sonoma this past December since she know's I'm a marshmallow addict. I went to reorder them from the W-S website but hesitated when I saw the price. Of course, I checked out All-Recipes and found Emily's recipe. Well, I tried it right away and have to say I wouldn't change a thing. These were easy, taste wonderful (use REAL vanilla!) and very impressive for a minimal amount of work. Not only do I love them and the oos and aahs I get from my adult friends, but my 7 and 8 year-old both love them and have their friends jealous and asking for them whenever they come over to play. Way to go Emily....this one's a keeper~
