  11. Geri, I looked over some of your recipes (looking for cookie recipes)and this one caught my eye. Sure looks good. I have a pork loin in the refrigerator, maybe some of it will go into the Pork and Cider Stew. We love gyros but have never tried making them ourselves. I want to make this one soon.

    What kind of cookies did you win the blue ribbons for?
