Anthony's Project
 There are so many things in the world that cause us to shudder or worry, and many of us feel everything is out of control. Well I ran across someone who's making a difference, something positive, one person, one day at a time. Yesterday I received a call f...

I think I should go through my old recipe files more often. When I found the previous recipe from 1977 - the Apple Cake, I also found some even older recipes I'd saved. This one, for Oatmeal Cake is from a newspaper clipping about 1950 that my mother had sa...

Elephant Garlic Pie
