I received this "blank"cookbook a few years ago as a gift from dear friend wen my daughter was three...

http://www.amazon.com/SUCK-UK-My-Fam...blank+cookbook

My daughter (now five) have always cooked a lot together and it's been great fun making this book - the book has room for the recipe , notes and a picture.

Recently - I requested a family members blueberry muffin recipe, and my daughter and I went to a local blueberry picking farm to pick fresh berries. I wrote the recipe in the book along with notes about where the recipe and a picture and memories from our day picking berries.

When my mom visited recently - she made her famous Brownies with my daughter, and I had her write the recipe in the book and took a picture of the two of them cooking together...

My much loved aunt passed recently. She used to make a beet salad that she brought to baby showers and other family events. I really wish I had her recipe. I don't particularly like beet salad and I know there are thousands of recipes online but I want HER recipe.

I love old recipes .....thanks for posting these

Edited to add - my husbands great great grandmother enjoyed candy making and made small batches for friends, family and a little for profit on the side. She published a small little booklet of her recipes and about a hundred copies. Recently, one surfaced in a cleanout of a family members house and was given to us . I'm going to try make some of them when my daughter gets a little older

Butterscotch Rolls Don't know why they're called this, since there isn't any butterscotch.

1 1/2 cups scalded milk
6 (?) cups flour
1/4 t. salt
1 yeast cake
1/3 cup shortening
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs

Dissolve yeast in milk. Add sugar, salt, beaten egg and 1/2 flour. Add shortening and enough flour to make a soft dough.
Knead well and place in buttered bowl. Let rise until doubled. Punch down and rise again for 45 minutes.
Roll out dough and make into rolls.
Let rise again. Bake 15 minutes at 400.

This is very similar to my hamburger rolls recipe. Maybe it's the color they achieve after baking, the deep honey golden color.

Thanks! I loved those porcupines back in the day. I wonder if you could cook them in a crock pot?

I can't see why not. I don't ever remember having them, but they sound like stuffed peppers or cabbage rolls without the peppers or cabbage.

That's what I was thinking of, these reminds me of stuffed cabbage rolls. I wonder if I add chopped cabbage to the mix will it mimic the taste without the labor...off to try it. I never had porcupines either, cute name!

DIRTGRINDER-I know I know! It's a vintage recipe but I am just adding cabbage, I will keep it exactly the same otherwise.
