For the past few years
my cousins and I have been gathering recipesand wanting to put together a family cookbook.
I took them all and typed them up
and have been carrying them around on a
flash drive for almost 2 years now.
Last summer while my cousin Gina was home
we went and got some prices on getting them printed
and we got a really good price
now we just had to get them formatted and emailed
to the place and it would be complete.
Well ~ I have never gotten around to formatting them
which are currently in Word
and it would take all of an afternoon to complete
but it is something I have been putting off
and putting off...
Last week while I was on vacation
I thought I would compile them
and at least make them available on line
to the kin folk
so that is what I did...
A History in the Baking
l-r My Grandmother Barb, Great-Grandmother Helene
Aunt Dorcas (on the floor) and Aunt Francie
We just picked the sweet ones
the ones that brought back memories for us all
the ones that Grammy used to make on the farm
ones passed down from her mother
to her 3 daughters
These are the ladies that helped gather the recipes
and I want to give a shout out to them all!
Carolyn, Dianne, me, Gina & Julie
Anne & Aunt Sue
So if you are looking for something sweet
drop by and look through the list
I can vouch for them all
(except the fruitcakes)
as I have sampled them in the past
and have the thighs to show for it!
