From Mrs. Gosset, my Home Economic teacher in 1964. You know, it has been a long time since I did these recipes and her name may have been Mrs. Gossar -- I don't really remember, but she was an organized and excellent teacher and we learned a lot. My mom promoted my cooking learning at home but my teacher got me really into it and widened my horizons.
