Old and New Family Recipes... Old Recipes that have been in the family for years... or New Recipes that you plan to hand to the next generations... I attach the person who made the recipe first to the recipe... and tell a bit about the person and the recipe.

Great Grandmother Fraser’s Clootie Dumpling
I cook this at Christmas instead of Christmas pudding as not only is it lighter and fresher than the traditional Christmas pudding, but it is also very easy to make.

Three friends married women
from different parts of the country.
The first man married a woman from Alabama . He told her that she was to do
the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third
day, he came home to see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.
The second man married a woman from South Dakota . He gave his wife orders
that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking.
The first day he didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was
better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done,
and there was a huge dinner on the table.
The third man married a girl from Wisconsin ... He ordered her to keep the
house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on
the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the
second day he didn't see anything but by the third day, some of the swelling
had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was
healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.
He still has some difficulty when he pees.

I have so many..... like coming home from school to the smell of fresh baked bread and cinnamon rolls! Or my mother's "Sticky Chicken" or my mother winning the Kraft recipe contest back in the 60's. BUT.... there is a memory I have.... I was very ill and couldn't go to school for quite a while... I was reading the book "HEIDI". I had no appetite at all... my mother kept trying to get me to eat.... and one day she said I will make you anything you can think of.... (we lived on a ranch/farm and the nearest big grocery store was about 60 miles away), I told her I wanted the bread with goat cheese that Heidi's grandpa made for her....
My mother did the best she could, and made bread with melted swiss cheese on it... buy I knew it wasn't goat cheese....not like The Grandfather's! I ate it... but was dissapointed and my mother could tell... and I felt so badly that I had hurt her feelings... but I always remember her making that for me.... and it meant so much then.... and even more now............. xo
