Steak, the heart of a family gathering during the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 1970's
Email -
My mom's, aunt's, cousin's, their families and friends.  Recipes from a
generation gone by.  Eating dinner, back in the early to mid part of last
century, held our families together and helped make this nation great.  A
feeling of belonging, of purpose, floated in the air and was soaked up in the
very food the women prepared.  For back then, it was the moms, who kept
the family together.  Mom's were the heart and soul of the family.  I miss
those days of being a kid, running through the back door, hearing my mom's
voice call out.

Here are some of those recipes.  I add them as I go through my mom's crate
of recipes.  I include recipes found in old tin recipe boxes, and other places.  All
recipes were handwritten.

From time to time, I run across vintage recipes books, actually
I search endlessly!  I love recipes, as they remind me of being
a kid.  Mom fixin supper in the kitchen, my sister, my father
and me (yes, I typed me, instead of I ) watching tv in the living
room, our mouths salavating as the homemade goodness
tickled our noses.  I couldn't wait to hear mom's voice call,
"supper's ready".  O, delicious savory memories of days gone
by.  Here is another of those recipe booklets many mothers
use to use.

If you want to revisit homemade recipes from times when
mothers actually cooked, here is a great one to add to your
collection.  Once the booklet is sold, these recipes will be taken
down, they are only here as of a purchasing temptation.
