When Grandma died in April of 2009, I got her recipe box. Her recipes showed her love for sweets, and for treating the rest of us. I wanted Grandma's posterity to have access to this little window into what Grandma shared with us all, so I am posting the recipes in her box here, along with a few more of hers that I have. I have tried to stay as close to her originals as possible (quirks and all) so I am sure people will have questions. You'll just have to use your best judgement since Grandma isn't here for us to ask. There are a couple of recipes in her cookbooks that were already on food.com, so check them out as well. Grandma never wanted anyone to leave her house hungry. And as far as I know, no one ever did.
Grandma loved having everyone over for hamburger cookouts, for Thanksgiving dinner, or on Christmas Eve. She and Grandpa always had a huge garden and lots of fruit trees. She canned, or dried, or froze a lot of what they grew. If her recipe box is any indication, her favorite foods must have been: popcorn and popcorn balls, jello salads, and cakes and desserts. She must have gotten a lot of her recipes at Relief Society meetings over the years, and must have provided a lot of food for church gatherings as well. Do you have a favorite recipe that you got from Grandma? What are your favorite food memories of visiting Grandma and Grandpa's house? If you e-mail them to me, I will share them with everyone.
