    Patti, I am a current email recipient and an avid viewer of your shows.
    I am looking for a homemade drink that my mom use to make for me as a child. The drink is called “Atole”. Hope that I spelled it correctly. I would like to give this recipe to my grandson as a Christmas present. Mario is always asking me for recipes and we share back and forth.
    Thank you in advance
