Aunt Nell was my mother's sister, whom I visited for the first time in 1970. I grew up in another state and back then, people did not just go to visit family when they lived a thousand miles away. I loved her oatmeal bread and asked for the recipe which she graciously gave to me. This one kind of touches my heart because we have very few recipes from my mother's (or father's) family. I'm glad I found it in my notebook!!
