I was looking through my recipes today for a pound cake recipe to cook for someone who has just come home from the hospital. Although I have several different recipes for pound cakes, this one is absolutely the best. I'll share it with you some time. While looking for it (I guess you know now that I must not have my recipes in cute binders in categories....but that's another project later) I found another recipe that my mother-in-law had given me. It was in her handwriting and had splatter marks on it from where she had used it. I kept it out and as quick as I put the cake in the oven I started working on framing her recipe. I have wanted to do this before (and I want to find one of my mother's writing) so today was the day. As I said....it has spatter marks, and I may never use this particular recipe but I will treasure it because it was written by her. My children remember her handwriting from their birthday cards but I hope one day my grandchildren will begin asking questions about that "strange artwork" on my kitchen shelf. That will open a door for many stories!
This is the shelf where I put the framed recipe in my kitchen. By the way.....the cake turned out great......wish I could cut it.
