We love most anything that's been around for a long while including recipes! Our goal is to continue to use and pass down to others the homemade way!

Granny White's Chicken

(This is the supper my gran made for us when we weren't feeling up to scratch. I know everyone has a similar recipe, but whenever I make it it reminds me of her.)

G is not feeling well today - maybe coming down with a cold. So we're having our go-to 'I feel off' dinner which is chicken pieces slow stewed in chicken broth with thyme, celery, carrots and onions. Mashed potatoes, of course, for the gravy, and peas. We can't eat it without sweet pickles on the side, because that's the way Granny served it!

Welcome New Members!

Looks like we have some new members!
This group has more than quadrupled since I found it.
Feel free to share any of your heritage, classic, or old family recipes here. Also, those recipes that came with instruction booklets for old appliances - those must be priceless! Maybe some of the appliances are even now gone out of use, but the recipes remain.

Granny's Cookbook

I have my granny's cookbook. It's a hardcover ledger book and each recipe is handwritten by her. If she were alive today she would be 113 years old, so some of these recipes are at least 90 years old. I'll post some of them when I'm not so busy. My favourite is 'Campbell Soup Cake', which is made with a tin of tomato soup and various spices and raisins, always frosted with maple icing.

Memories ..... sigh .....

Cooking Heritage

I wish the women in my family had thought to write recipes down. I have my mother's cookbook, stuffed with handwritten recipes and her canning book, but a lot of what she cooked was stored in her head, just as her mother stored hers.

Heritage Cookbooks

I've always loved just "reading" cookbooks - especially those with historical information. I have 3 favorites that help you convert the old recipes to more modern ways and ingredients. I will post them below. Here is another that is so interesting.

We do this as a legacy for our daughters. Homemade is a treasure. Thanks for creating our group on Just a Pinch!
