Family Recipes Add Special Flavor to Dinner Table

Gingerbread Through the Generations

The cornerstone of good cooking often goes far beyond the four corners of the recipe page. Time and again I've heard friends declare that family recipes are the only ones they can truly rely on. Not only do they come wrapped in tradition, but they are also usually far tastier than your average fare.

New member Donna Brown of Trenton, TN has been busy posting some of her family favorites to the Recipe Club. Among them is her recipe for gingerbread with lemon sauce. "This is a very old recipe," says Donna. "It was given to me by a dear friend who got it from her mother, who in turn received it from her mother, well, you get the idea. It is absolutely delicious." Delicious, indeed. And a legacy worth sharing. Click here to see Donna's recipe.
