Woman Mention the name of Velma Hagg and everyone immediately thinks of "Good Cookin' ". This quiet, soft-spoken lady delights in baking as a pastime, but also bakes and decorates anniversary and birthday cakes, cookies, rolls and doughnuts for others. Something else she enjoys making is her very popular Sugar Cookies. Most women thoroughly dislike rolling out dough, fussing to make sure it's the right thickness, then cutting different shapes and sizes, but not Velma. Of course, food prepared with the skill she has is something one doesn't develop over night. Velma and her husband, Ed, have been married 43 years. He has now retired and they are extremely busy doing all of the things they most enjoy, and that includes many different things. Many hours during their lifetime have been spent working for their church. Several times $11 day bake sales, as moneymaking (projects, havebeenhead- ed by Velma and her close friend, Mabel Hutzell. The kind of sales where the food is baked right there while you wait - breads, cookies, doughnuts and rolls. Four years ago Velma started taking organ lessons with her grandchildren and Ed told her if she learned to play one song, he would buy her an organ, she accepted that challenge and now has a Hammond organ which she plays for her own enjoyment. Ed has also taken lessons, so it's a relaxing pastime for both. She took cake decorating several years ago at night school, thus prompting the anniversary and birthday cake business. Knitting is something Velma enjoys, but only does when she attends her Knitting Club meetings. She bought yarn for an afghan four years ago and is still working on it. No, she hasn't knit on anything else at the meetings, just her afghan. It's her lifetime project! Here are a very few of her favorite recipes she so willingly shared. Summer time entertaining should be relaxing and enjoyable for everyone, most of all the hostess.
