Straws Kitchen


This is not I recipe...there was a Fifty State Cookoff (recipes from all 50 states).
This is a real recipe of AR Persimmon Pudding; one thing our State is supposedly known for.
AND NO, I have not made this can't find any persimmons around where I live.

We also have
"Hillary's Chocolate Chip Cookies"
"Arkansas Razorbacks"
and "Arkansas Sin"
YES..these 3 are recipes too.
Guess I should post them also.
I have already shared them with a group I joined called USA State Recipes.

P.S. This is also NOT my photo, it goes with the winning recipe.
