Historic farmhouse collection recipe. Another interesting recipes speaking to us through the past. The collection of recipes on the walls of that farm house were all carefully written with pride in the ability and imagination of this cook with no name, but a time capsule of wonder on the walls. I am more than thrilled to share these recipes on such a network as Just A Pinch. This way everyone can share the treasures I found.
