Are they "Nerds" or "Nurds?" Who cares, they are a delicious fusion of chocolate and peanut butter!

After Nana’s passing in February we uncovered her recipe collection. What a treasure! It’s stored in a Campbell’s Soup recipe tin — is that perfect or what? (See image.)

Nana meticulously filed these handwritten and typed 3x5 cards by category. It seems overwhelming, but we vow to go through this collection and bring new recipes to the site. In addition, we’ll be able to add more handwritten recipe images to current recipes.

I learned something new thumbing through the collection. One of Nana’s signature recipes, “Nerds,” is actually spelled “Nurds” on the original recipe. (Check out the larger image of the recipe.) The derivation of the name has always been a mystery — something I suspect I’ll investigate and report on in a future edition of “What’s Cooking!”
