FAMILY RECIPE FRIDAY
My grandmother, Florence Bowden Milne left us a spiral bound notebook, which I refer to has her journal. In it she left a treasure chest of family information and wonderful clues to life back in the early 1900's. P.S. That's my grandmother in the picture on the right side of this page. She's the one standing on the right.
A recipe doesn't necessarily have to be something that is for cooking. With that in mind I will be sharing various types of recipes, both for cooking and for other things from my grandmother's journal. These items range from recipes for complexion cream (featured today), to curling fluids for your hair to cures for blackheads or acne. You'll see them all here as the weeks continue. So come back often.
TODAY'S FEATURED RECIPE
|RECIPE FOR COMPLEXION CREAM|
Many of the items used in my grandmother's recipes aren't even available to us any more. But, what fun it is to look at them.
Have we ever thought of our ancestor's lives without all of our modern conveniences? Even something as common as a cream for your face had to be made by hand.
Can you find any old recipes from your family?
