I don't get my family's recipes until I get married. Seriously. I asked my grandmother, who then passed the decision off to her daughters: my aunt nixed the idea. (She just recently got married, and darn it, I'll have to wait, too!)
Recipes I am privvy to include:
Fudge Pie for Neil S. - originally made for my uncle Neil by a girlfriend's mother ... she's out of the picture, but the pie's still here
Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing - my great-grandmother's recipe
Chicken, Cabbage, and Noodles - I'll have to make that soon!
Cucumbers and Onions - my grandmother's recipe, with white vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper ...
"In all our woods there is not a tree so hard to kill as the buckeye. The deepest girdling does not deaden it, and even after it is cut down and worked up into the side of a cabin it will send out young branches, denoting to all the world that Buckeyes are not easily conquered, and could with difficulty be destroyed." - Daniel Drake, 1833
