Hello! In the kitchen with Sharon this week is Ruth Tucker.

Ruth is a great cook, and she is known for her homemade noodles, but that is just one of her specialties. Ruth had these peanut clusters on Facebook, and I sent her a message and asked if I could put them in my column. She said sure.

I have known Ruth and her family my whole life, and her mother was a fabulous cook also.

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe with all of us. This is a keeper.

I don’t know about all of you, but I like easy, but it has to be good.

Thank you for all of these great recipes! Keep the candy and cookie recipes coming. I need some easy cookie recipes as I am not a very good cookie maker.

Combine butterscotch chips and chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl.

Remove from the microwave, and mix in peanuts.
