New England Johnny Cake

This recipe for New England Johnny Cake from my grandma’s recipe box was a surprising find. It is like cornbread, but not the sweet version I grew up with.

This Raspberry Banana Frozen Dessert is a perfect dish to serve on a hot summer day while watching the kids catch fireflies.

Rhubarb Oatmeal Bars

This recipe for rhubarb oatmeal bars from my grandma’s recipe box carries with it memories of avocado green ovens, matchbox cars and a grandpa I never met.

Mocha Bars

These mocha bars were one of my grandmother’s favorites to serve when friends and family would come over for coffee. The recipe is from a community cookbook compiled by the ladies sewing circle of the small rural church she attended.
