Thank You so much
Welcome, mamabear. I've been decoding my grandmother's cookbook. I was fortunate to learn to bake bread and a few other things from her before she died, so I am able to decipher most of the recipes, although she was a bit scant on the instructions. Knowing how she cooked, and having a bit more experience now than I did at 10, I can take a stab at the instructions.
Perhaps google books would have a copy of one of the school's cookbooks?
