Baking powder, 4 tbs. Sugar, 1 beaten egg, 1 cup
milk and 2 tbs. Melted shortening.

Lucille didn't give us the oven temperature, I
suppose this was a favorite recipe of hers and she
knew how long to bake her graham muffins.  
Perhaps, she expected other women to know
baking temperatures.

Where as that may have been true in the 30
's, 50's, and 60's, I am not so sure about
today.  Until I started taking a closer look at these
older recipes, I hadn
't used my kitchen for
cooking in quite some years.

We were a fast food family, full of sandwiches,
frozen dinners, microwave goodies.  Sure we did
fresh fruits and vegetables, but to sit down at a
supper tab
le, well, I am ashamed to say, we
't.  Then I remembered how much fun I had
as a kid in my mom's kitchen.
