JoEllen Fortenberry Ford Recipe

By JoEllen Fortenberry Ford JoEllen1946

This is the recipe my mother-in-law made for her 5 boys and twin girls. she had very little time as she had to iron every shirt for the boys and her husband for the week and cook every meal.She was a Wonder Woman who was a clergy wife, Sunday school teacher and mom. She made all of the kid's clothes as well and quilted for the local shelter. This is her quick recipe for yeast bread. I received this in 1972.
