This is a collection of recipes passed down by the Houghton sisters ~ Barbara, Dorcas & Frances.
An idea that became a reality when family bonded together to gather recipes from the past. I would like to thank everyone for their submissions. Many a memory we have from these tasty treats and hopefully by putting them all together ~ many more can be made.
***THIS IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION ~ I THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. Coming soon: Applesauce Cake, Carrot Cake, War Cake, Gingerbread, Gumdrop Pound Cake, Green Tomato Mincemeat, Apple Pudding, Apple Crisp & Banana Muffins
