You can imagine where these came from

A weekend return to our lighter summer theme: I present excerpts from a cookbook prepared by our daughter as a gift to her mother. A key section is called "Tools and Tips: Lessons learned along the way." Some have particular relevance to this season, while others have universal applicability -- notwithstanding their autobiographical origin.

1) Do not use the microwave to make chocolate cake or hard boiled eggs.

2) While picking blueberries in Truro, do not crouch in poison ivy.

3) Never make mashed potatoes in the food processor.

4) Avoid eating ice cream cones while driving in convertibles on hot days.
