Today, we're looking for those treasures in your recipe box. You know the ones...the cards are worn and include years of splatters and smears, maybe they're even in Grandma's own handwriting.
While we're always up for trying something new, our love of old-fashioned recipes from days gone by is part of the reason Gooseberry Patch cookbooks are what they are today.
We've found that the recipes passed from Grandma and Mom are the heart of our kitchens and we'd love to hear about those that really take you back. So, tell us...
What are YOUR favorite OLD-FASHIONED recipes?
Share 'em all in today's Recipe Round-Up!
Here's a recipe to inspire you from our nationally bestselling
cookbook, Farmhouse Kitchen...enjoy!
