Bammy's Daisy Recipe Box

Today's recipes are in a Green Metal box covered with yellow and white daisies. Every recipe is handwritten or carefully types on plain 3x5" cards, brown on the edges with edges and speckled with ingredients from use. There was a letter to Bammy included in which her grand-daughter, Lauren writes: "Hi Bammy, Found this letter mom had written you and never sent. Thought it would mean something to you. I went through all the recipes and picked out the ones I was familiar with & grew up eating. Thought you might enjoy going through them-some are from you. Spent a week going through cookbooks. When I get a computer, I will compile a booklet of family recipes. Thinking of you. Love, Lauren 02/21/00"
Lucky for me, I have the rest of the recipes. I refer to them as from "Bammy's" Daisy Recipe Box in the recipe descriptions.

About Me
I love to cook and the older I get, the more I want simple, tasty, wholesome recipes that I can whip up quickly. But I'm not adverse to going out on a limb to try something new, tricky, or unusual if I think it will be a winner.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always open to trying something new, but at the end of the day, I love to bake. Cakes, pies, cookies, or breads. And, I love to can my own produce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Old Fashioned Ice-Box Cookies: My Grandmother made them with her mother every Thanksgiving, my sister and I made them with my Grandmother when we were kids, and I carry on the family tradition.
My cooking triumphs
The Osso Bucco I made in 2000 based on a "Cooking Light" recipe. To this day it's the best thing I've ever made.
My cooking tragedies
The organic chicken I tried to roast in 2002; the darn thing never really cooked and we ended up throwing it away and ordering take-out. It was one disgusting specimen of poultry! We still laugh about that old, dried, up old....rooster.
