Welcome to DC! You might be able to help me decipher my grandma's recipes that my mother and I did not get to (my mother has dementia and hated to cook). I believe the gene skipped a generation.

Good morning from North Wales Polly.

I was married by a judge, I should have asked for a jury.

Good morning Polly, we're glad to have you here and you'll have a great time. Good cooks, good people, and good fun. This is a great place to hang your apron. Welcome.

deciphering grandma's recipes

I would love to help if I can. It is such fun to read old recipes and figure out (or try to) what the cook meant! I have a few very old cookbooks and each of my grand daughters will sit and read them like a novel just as I do!!

Welcome! I see we're neighbors. I live here in the heart of the Ozarks too, just south of Branson and near the Buffalo River. There's a great old time cooking heritage here that I've not seen anywhere else except Guam. I think it takes a culture that cares about it's roots in order to preserve what was best from our past. The local Mennonites have taught me that.
