I have a one-butt kitchen. Basically that means it's a narrow one. If more than one person at a time plans to work there, everyone needs to know and maintain her/his position, or there will be a delicate collision.

So today my sister-in-law (s-i-l) and I danced. All day, pretty much. We knew our places: she at the stove, stirring, and I, gathering items for the next recipe and the next. We were on a baking binge. Each recipe filled with the best of the best was on the Things I get to do today.

S-i-l was in charge of balls. She knows how to make them and break them: marzipan balls, whiskey balls and rum balls. Wow! She packs a punch.

And nuts! Did I mention nuts? Buttered Pecans and Pralined Almonds spread out on big baking sheets to cool.
