Hello all,

I am new to DC and have just read this forum all the way through. What wonderful memories you conjured up in my mind of my Grandma's kitchen and her wonderful cooking. As a kid i remember that she too would very occasionally consult a small notebook bulging with loose scraps of paper of all shapes and sizes which was her cookbook. Thank you, for a lovely trip down memory lane.

How lucky you are, that you can smell her kitchen when you open her recipes.

Welcome to DC! What happened to your grandma's notebook? I have moved my gran's from MN to NB to Ontario. Finally, I appreciate it....and it would be the first thing I would grab if the house were on fire...maybe I should lock it up in the safe deposit box...

Regretfully it disappeared when she died. I'd give an arm for her wholemeal bread recipe.

I think your Gran would probably prefer you to use her recipes rather than lock them away. Why not photo-copy them just as they are, and create a working book from the copies. THEN lock the original away?
