I looked through the recipes and can't seem to find one that sounds familiar so I don't really know if grandma used a recipe from this book either.
However, there are two recipes cut from the wrapper from a Crisco can glued to the inside front cover. I can just see her now moistening the back of the perfectly cut recipes with a bottle of LePages glue.
The recipe for Chow Mein And Fried Noodles does sound familiar.
Who'd a thought that you could make something with your leftover coffee? Next time you have some coffee left over in the pot don't throw it out. Make some baked coffee custard, or how about a coffee spice layer cake.
Oh, I almost forgot about the Mocha Icing.
Some of these recipes have pretty strange names. Some of them look like something I might try. Some of them make my stomach curdle just thinking about them.
- TIPSY PUDDING
- CHICKEN MOUSSE
- FRICADELLONS WITH NOODLES
- OLD LADY CAKE
- CHEESE BLINTZES
- GOLDEN MOUNTAIN
- COURT BOUILLON
- PAIN PERDU
Any of those sound appetizing? Or maybe you're just curious enough to know what the recipe is. Which ever the case may be, let me know in the comments and I may just post one. :-)
