Sweet History — 7 Comments

  1. I have my mom’s recipes and her cookbook. There truly is something special about recipes that have stains, scribbles, and modifications including updates. Your post reminds me of the times the my mom and I baked together.

    I have added a few adult recipes for root beer float day.
    Root Beer Floatini
    1.5 oz. Root Beer Vodka (I use Three Olives)
    .5 oz. Amaretto liqueur

    Shake hard over ice & strain into glass
    Float a melon-ball size scoop of vanilla ice cream in center. Enjoy

    Three-O Root Beer Float
    2 oz. Root Beer Vodka (I use Three Olives)
    4 oz. root beer

    Float 1 scoop vanilla ice cream on top and enjoy.

  2. I loved that post, Crystal! I bet you got hundreds on all your tests!
    You write about the sweetest things! Of course I snatched that recipe…and I don’t think I’m going to wait until it cools off to make it!!! xoxo Paulette ;D

  3. My mother NEVER used a recipe. I come from a line of restauant owners who never used recipes.

    My mother used to make a cake from scratch that I would love to have the recipe for. It was not chocolate, but was pale pale brown and it was topped with a chocolate chip crumble, but the chips weren’t melted. I barely remember it anymore, but I remember that I loved it.

  4. You have such pretty hand writing for a 5th grader. I would have given you an A for penmanship!

    I, too, have treasured recipes from Mom and my Mother-in-law,
    In fact I just copied one this AM for my daughter in law.

    It’s a wonderful cycle.

  5. This looks like a fantastic recipe and I love that it’s written on the back of your test! What a fun (and useful!) keepsake!!
