About This Blog

I will be starting this blog about recipes that are in my mother's old recipe file box. As you can see there are quite a few, so this will take me one or two years, (maybe longer) to complete. I will try and add the original recipe plus a picture as I bake or cook the recipes up.
I am putting all the recipes on the blog for my family and others to see and print off for their families. Also printing these for me and putting in a regular 8 1/2" x 11" type notebook. I am putting the original recipes on acid-free card stock, hopefully to last longer.
The top picture is of the file box and the block of wood is a cheese cutter board, that my father made for me and I have passed it on to my oldest daughter. The recipe box is over 50 years old and all of us, children and grandchildren remember this box in my parents kitchen through the years. My niece was here this past weekend and was smelling the papers in the box and said, they smell like granny's kitchen. I also received this box from my sister, so that I could get this project going. Hope you all enjoyed it and help me to keep motivated to finish this. The hard part will be to buy the ingredients to get them all made, this is why it will take a while to finish. Hopefully I can do it!

  1. I love your blog! Thanks for stopping by mine (the Found Recipe Box). It has been a lot of fun to dig through all of these old recipes. I have a lot to learn from them! It will be fun to see what each of us finds our recipe boxes. I like that you're posting scans of the cards too, it's cool to see the old paper and some of the old ads from newspapers. I look forward to following your journey!
