Food for Thought - recipes from the relatives



I was cleaning out some old recipe books a couple years ago, planning to recyle some of them to a charity. Thank goodness my father looked through them because he discovered that one that was slated for donation was a 1950 cookbook compilation from the American Legion Auxiliary in Hardy, Nebraska, where much of our family resided for several decades. As I looked through it, not only did I find familiar names, but photographs of several family members who contributed recipes for the publication. I'm going to have to try this cake recipe some day! It sounds good!

  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
