|I realised when I was writing "Project update" that I never shared the first volume of my family recipe book with you all. Some of you may have seen it on Facebook, but it's worth sharing. It took me 8 years (mostly to collate the recipes), and I still have two more volumes to go. Nearly 600 recipes, some modern, some dating back to WWII, and a bunch inbetween. All recipes are written as they're given to me, which means some are metric, some are imperial, some use outdated measurements (yes, even more outdated than imperial! ). There's a handy measurement converter in the back though. |
This first volume is all the 'meals' - breakfast, snacks and starters, soups, main meals and desserts and puddings. You'll see my dad's tongue-in-cheek contribution of baked beans on toast right at the beginning!
Volume two will be baking.
Volume three will be special occasions, sweets, drinks, condiments and preserves, and miscellaneous. I've been told miscellaneous will even include an old recipe for 'flying ointment'.

When the page opens, click on 'preview' and then you can flick through the pages. If anyone wants an actual recipe (you probably can't read them well enough on the screen), holler at me. I'm not sharing to encourage anyone to buy a copy (I don't make a profit on the books), but just to share my achievement.
