It shall be this one's duty to offer recipes and menus. These will be easy to follow, and tested to be good enough that a slave would allow his Master to serve it to Master's Guests and reflect only the best of his Master.
For far worse than Master's anger is Master's disappointment.

Memories of Toddle House Banana Cream Pie cookies!
in the Fifties, before slave was in the fifth grade. There was a
special destination that my mother would drive my brother and I to.
The Toddle House.
was a little diner about a mile away from where we lived. Of course
we could never afford to eat there, but they did have a most
fantastic treat. It was what they called an “Ice Box Pie” -
“Banana Cream” and it was covered in whipped cream. This was the
one extravagance that my mother could swing for her kids. After all
it was 15 cents a slice! We couldn't do that every week, but once in
awhile was OK. I guess that made it all that much more special.
one time there were hundreds of Toddle Houses around the country but
the name was sold out in the early 60's and all traces disappeared by
slave decided to made a banana cream tasting cookie, it just had to
be a “Toddle House”. This is a very easy recipe. Now these
cookies freeze very well so portion them out into freezer bags of 4
or 5 cookies each, and stick them into the back of the unit.
you make it a treat like that it will be all the more special for
your loved ones.
