FAMILY RECIPE FRIDAY
My grandmother, Florence BOWDEN MILNE left us a spiral bound notebook, which I refer to has her journal. The entire notebook is written in her hand and was begun about the time of her marriage to my grandfather, Joseph, in 1906. In it she left a treasure trove of family information and wonderful clues to life back in the early 1900's.Not only did she leave names & birth dates for many of our ancestors, but she left various types of recipes. Some for cooking, some for making items that we can now purchase at a store. This is one of those items.
