Sink your teeth into today's top stories from around the globe.
He's gulping down the wine before he hits the sack with Mr. Ed!
The evil family has been passing down some unwanted recipes we believe originated civil war era (I have not inherited these, nor do I have access yet, unfortunately). They are truly unwanted, as some of them are barely edible, but they are historically very interesting, and mean a lot to the family as they were collected generations ago. So I do actually understand what the author means when she's talking about the stories behind recipes no one really wants.
I do argue, however, that they recipes themselves are not the important part, but the material they are on along with the story behind it. I feel it would do me no good to just digitally copy the recipes and throw out the paper collection. It's value is in the delicate and torn cards, covered in cooking stains.
Hear hear. I have my grandmothers favorite cookbook with all kinds of dog eared pages, her hand written notes and other newspaper clipped recipes sprinkled through out the book. One recipe I'm looking forward to making is Dandelion Whiskey. It stays in my kitchen until the day comes that I pass along as well.
"36. Never reek from perfume or cigarettes. People want to smell the food and beverage." Yes, thank you.
