Comments From Heritage Recipes Visitors
Holly, Thank you, thank you for the hot milk cake recipe. I
had one like it of my Mom's. When she passed away many recipes on small cards
disappeared. That was one of them. I remember her making cupcakes, birthday
cakes, Washington Pie and Strawberry Shortcake, all out of this same recipe.
Talk about versatile...I can't wait to try more of your recipes. Reminds me of
my childhood. Cecilia
"What a wonderful site and project!!! Thank
you, M Lampkin"
"I am in the process of compiling a
Heritage Cookbook for our church. We are going to celebrate our 125th
anniversary this fall. So I was Googling about Heritage Cookbooks, etc. I
Googled "heritage recipes" and found your site. It is SUPER! I enjoy most the
stories along with the recipes. Jim"
"This is a lovely idea for a website, but it
would be even nicer if it were made into a repository. Actual photos or digital
images of the original recipes written in the author's own hand would make this
a priceless collection. Best of luck to you!
Hello, I just had to tell you that
several years ago when I was trying to figure out what to do with my
grandmother's recipe cards, I found your site. You inspired me to start my own
gramsrecipebox.com, and I have really enjoyed
the journey! Thanks for the inspiration and long live vintage & handwritten
recipes! :-) Sincerely, Martha
"This is the first time that I have
visited this site, but it certainly won't be my last!"
"Your web site is AWESOME!!! Thank you so much
for the wonderful information provided on your site! Sally"
"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really appreciate this
recipe (Butter Roll Dessert). I intend to make it for my family now that I know
the basics again. I love the heritage recipes. I guess I feel the old recipes
are still the best. Thanks again."
"You are so lucky to have such a wonderful
collection of these old cookbooks. I just love them myself and with no kids and
only 3 nieces, none of which enjoy cooking, I fear that when I'm going, they're
wonderful posterity will be lost. These older books have the best recipes and
love to read the comments! Thanks for sharing a peek into yours! "
"Just a note to say what a brilliant site. 1st X-mas with out
mom, and your site brings back great memories! Merry Christmas!"
"Thank you for your website and the
history you are saving. I love nothing better than to go through old cookbooks
for those hidden gems!"
Sweet Pickle Relish
"Good Morning! I have visited
your site several times, so it was only natural to search your files when my
daughter, Jenni needed a "pickle product" recipe for her 4-H exhibit.
She chose JoAnnia's Sweet Relish recipe. It was easy for Jenni to follow, and
the result was a delicious, dark green relish with red flecks. The judge liked
it too, because Jenni won the Champion ribbons for her division. Her relish
will travel to the Indiana State Fair for judging in August.
I just wanted to thank you for posting this recipe, and let you know that it is
now part of our family's Heritage too! Cindy and Jenni"
"The 'Sweet Relish From JoAnnia' recipe was terrific. I added 1 tsp of celery
seed to the recipe and it is just as good as name brand relish. Thanks so much,
Altie's Old Fashioned Sweet Tasting Potato Salad With
Dressing for Waldorf Salad & Deviled Eggs
"I was looking around for a good potato
salad to use my leftover Easter Eggs and I found Altie's Old Fashioned Sweet
Tasting Potato Salad With Dressing for Waldorf Salad & Deviled Eggs, Too! From
Susie. I made it the same day and my boyfriend and me just loved it. He hugged
and kissed me and said: "That is why I just love coming home to you! You cook
like a Goddess!" If there is a better compliment, I haven’t heard it yet!
Thank you Susie and Heritage Recipes!
"My wife and I really appreciate the wonderful Tomato
Dumpling recipe. Most recipes include onion and other ingredients that our
mothers did not use in their tomato dumplings".
Blackberry Wine Cake
"Hi, I was so happy to get the Grandmothers'
Blackberry wine cake recipe. I want to make the sponge cake but I don't know
exactly what to do so could you send me the recipe and also tell me if she used
a broiled frosting on it. My Mom died without me getting these recipe out of her
head and on to paper. You (Nancy) were so smart to do what you are doing and
sharing your wonderful memories with us. My husband died two months ago and I am
trying to do for my children now before it is too late for them to get my
recipes I have stored in my brain. Take care Barbara"
Soldier's Easy Fudge
"I just wanted to comment on the Soldier's Easy Fudge recipe...
There are several recipes that are simular to this..... they were put in news
papers to help families send something homemade to a loved one.... I have a
Civil War one....but back then the families went to war and camped out in tents
away from the fighting....and they made this candy and meals over open fires! I
also have a World War II one that is simular..... both of these were passed down
for generations..... I am in the process of typing them up for a book... and
someone told me to check this recipe out..... Thank you Colleen "
Boiled/Sea Foam Frosting
"I just stumbled across your site and read the posts about
boiled frosting. It brought back a funny memory of my mom, who as a young bride
in the ‘40s decided to surprise my father with a homemade red velvet Valentine’s
Day cake. Apparently, she was using a recipe for boiled frosting, because she
recalled that the recipe said to cook the frosting, “until it spun a nine-inch
thread.” Not having any idea what that meant (but being an avid seamstress!),
she obediently cut a piece of thread nine inches long and held it over the pot
while the frosting cooked, waiting for the thread to spin. A good while later,
when it was clear the thread was never going to spin, she decided it must be
long enough, took the pot off the heat and frosted the cake. The cake was a
thing of beauty to look at, my father said, but when it came time for dessert
and he tried to cut it, the knife wouldn’t penetrate the frosting. Finally,
using both hands and all of his considerable strength, he did succeed in getting
the knife through the frosting. Unfortunately, when he lifted the knife to make
a second cut, the frosting came off in one rock-solid piece – sort of like a
cake helmet. I don’t believe my mother ever attempted boiled frosting again! My
mother’s been gone for over five years now, but I have many wonderful memories
of her. This piece of family lore is one of my favorites."
Ethel's Jack Mackerel
"Just wanted to
share with you that I tried the recipe the other day - and first time at it, was
such a HIT! I put the pictures of the cakes on my
blog and I think a good number of people are actually
reading it! Thank you so much for creating a place for these recipes that will
last forever :-)! My best regards, Mei"
My husband remembered is grandma's pear honey...I'd never had
any so didn't know how to make it. Then, a found your website! He is 75 and the
elders have passed and he is pre-diabetic so he can only have a little bit at a
time...most is once a week. He is delighted! My thanks to whoever turned in this
recipe. It is my first pear honey, and my first time making any type of "jam"
without using Sure-jell. What a great joy all of you involved in this have given
me...your're the BEST! Patti
