All of these are handwritten so I could divide them in half. Glad you like them. I sure did!

I put a lot of my favorite handwritten recipes in My Recipe Box, which is very convenient and user friendly, except it puts in a lot of "bull" (instead of bullets) when I post recipes...

This recipe sounds like it would make a delicious dish that is also visually beautiful. Where did you get the recipe, PF?

It was my handwriting on a yellowed piece of paper, stuck in the bookcase. I stumbled across them today and decided to put them in the computer and share the more interesting ones. I have no idea where I found this one originally.
