Grandma's Cookbook

This is my Grandmothers Cookbook.
These are the recipes that my Grandmother fed her Family of 16 with.
Yes I said 16....14 Kids and Grandma and Grandpa.
The Cookbook was well used. The binding is gone and the book is held together with rubber bands. The pages are stained and aged.You can tell it was used very often and well loved.
I am honored that I am the keeper of my Grandma's Cookbook.
I thought it would be fun to share recipes from the Cookbook with you.
Of course Grandma would have had to double if not triple most of the recipes.
I hope you enjoy.
