when I have a little more time, I will tell you some stories.
All of the collected recipes I add here are taken from handwritten recipe boxes or journals.

love a collector. (You believe all that?)
Our mother's and grandmother's spent a great part of their lives in the kitchen preparing food

recipes too. It is their history, a part of who we were then. A part of why we are what we

mine. Just bake until done.
These old recipes, taken from Journals and little tin recipe boxes are a
fantastic way to keep our past alive. Women baked, broiled, fried,
and concocted all sorts of goodies way back then. We should never
