  1. I love grandma recipes! And I love that picture about resentment. Too funny. (It must be an "old time" thing to do heaping cups of things. My grandma's chocolate chip cookie recipe says 5 heaping cups of flour. (It's a huge recipe and uses all shortening.)

  2. Family recipes always taste the best. Apple crisp is one of my favorite desserts, and the more crumb topping, the better!

  3. I've noticed that grandma's recipes (not just yours, mine too!) seem so much simpler/have less ingredients. I love that! And yet they taste so wonderful...

    1. They do! Maybe that's a lesson for all of us! Maybe we should cook more simply.
