Favorite Food Memories, Rosanne Cash Cakes, and Other Food Links

Kicking off the morning with our occasional a.m. roundup of interesting links.

Which holiday cookie are you? No, this is not an inane quiz from a women's magazine. It's one from The Washington Post to help you figure out what type of cookies you should bake.

Speaking of. . . turns out, some cereals are worse than cookies, such as Honey Smacks, which have more sugar per serving than a Twinkie.

It's the holidays. Time to invite people over to booze. Arm yourself with a base, a spread, and garnishes for an unending array of finger foods for entertaining at the ready: a clever article from Mark Bittman in The New York Times.

I love Rosanne Cash, so now I'm now fixated on this recipe for her favorite cake from Rosanne's grandmother, brought to us via The Wall Street Journal

What's your favorite food memory of the year? asks Alyssa Shelasky of Grub Street on her personal blog, Apron Anxiety. It's a great question that can lead one down a rabbit hole of reminiscing, a lovely way to start a Monday. My favorite was a July 4th crab feast, spilling crab juice on my skirt, drinking Tecate, and exchanging the backfin lump with friends, an expression of affection, as odd as it may seem. 

What's yours? We'd love to read about it in the comments.
