M.Y. San Grahams Recipes

By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

I have always admired a colleague who is a teacher, student, business woman, friend, wife and most of all a mother of three beaming children. You might not believe how much she handles all roles in a day but she has made it all these years. She is forty three years old but you can never see in her any trace of hardship in fulfilling her responsibilities. She is as lovely and gay everyday. She said that she simply love her husband and children and would always inspire herself with the thought that the happiness they can give to her can't be bought with money and gold. I can really see in her what's the importance of marrying someone we love in achieving a desirable marriage.

One thing I love about her, she is always a good cook and she was able to share with me these simple, quick and easy dessert recipes that she often prepares on their table on weekends, the only uninterrupted days she can be with her family. If she has her children to try the taste of her Grahams home-made goodies, I have my friends in church who are really a ready support in tasting these recipes.

And let me share to you what they have to say about what I have made for them to taste that day.

Janice, a single and inspired friend who was teaching native dance steps to the youth that day told me that teaching the dance steps is never hard at all if it means having another slice of my Grahams Mango Float.

Lovely, indeed a lovely friend of mine even licked that tin pan where there are crumbs of Grahams Brownies left. She said that she can't afford to waste a single crumb because she just love the taste of it.

But I like what Enrique had said, "Juvy, you are now ready to be married because you are a superb cook!"

It might all be flattery or not but everyone has enjoyed the food and they are crying for more. You can do these recipes at home and taste it for yourself.
