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… MORE

Today I started recording recipes from a little metal recipe box from Kansas that seems to be owned by a women named Mildred. Regretfully, most of the recipes are cut-out of magazines and boxes, I really adore handwritten recipes instead, and have an obvious basement mildew smell. The recipe… MORE

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.
