1 part pecan sandy + 1 part cheesecake = 1 whole Scotch Square
As I comb through this stash of recipes I absolutely love finding handwritten notes along the way. I feel like these notes give me a glimpse of what my grandmas had on their mind. They are like a sneak peak into their journal.
Mushrooms and Onions in Wine
Grandma Joyce liked to keep things simple in a classic kind of way. She wasn’t fussy and she didn’t leave room for much fluff. I love that about her because her recipes aren’t full of tedious, unnecessary steps.
Sugar and Spice Nuts
Do you remember going to your grandparent’s house where they always had a dish of nuts on the coffee table? Me neither. Ok maybe you do. I know that was the trend back in the day so…maybe my grandparents put them away when my family showed up knowing they would have gone broke when the five of us emptied their stash. There are endless candy and nut bowls at antique stores that prove they were all the rage once upon a time. Maybe we should swoop some up and restart the trend!
