For years my Mother has used her church cookbook for many of the yummies she put in our tummies. My Aunt Dorothy passed away a few years back and left behind an accumulation of life. To make a long story short, my mother asked for my aunt Dorothy’s church cookbook. My mothers church cookbook has fallen apart and all the recipes are kept in a baggie. I thought my mother was getting this cookbook for herself, but instead passed it to me.
Receiving these old gems is exciting for me, especially when you find the little notes inside written by your loved one, capturing that one moment in time forever. I found a couple of scrap pieces of paper. It would appear as a list of things to buy or make not sure. I know my aunt wrote this as it was her hand writing.
These old cookbooks were quite an event back in the day. All the recipes collected, the pages typed up, and mimeographed and then bound and sold for whatever fundraiser to raise funds for the church. These old books make me smile. Some of the recipes are quite funny.
There is also some words of wisdom.
The last time my Aunt Arty came for a visit, she declared that she collects recipes. We had many laughs that day and I enjoyed my time with her and Carl immensely. You see right after she told the group of us she collects recipes, she said they were sooooo good. I asked if she had ever made that particular recipe and said claimed “No, I don’t cook.” 😉 This still makes me chuckle.
The following recipes are for Arty and Carl. Going through this cookbook I found some things you might be interested in and may want to collect.
And in closing this last recipe is one that my mother filled my tummy with for years. I am not sure if she followed this recipe as she probably used margarine or butter, but now I have this recipe and will adapt it to my own preferences for the little tummies in my house!
