Do you like finding new recipes?  I collect recipes...have been doing it for years.  This is my recipe's stained from the years of cooking.

 Every time I open this recipe book...a flood of memories takes over my mom, sisters, brother and friends pop out at me. 
This is a recipe I found one day while browsing the internet.  Can't remember where I found it...but it is really good!
Crock-pot Oatmeal
Doesn't it look yummy!
I've been working on my RSC blocks...I'm making Crazy Quilt blocks for this.  I have a pretty good stack of them...but I'm still playing catch up..I have January, February, May and June all done.

  2. I have never made crockpot oatmeal but it sounds yummy. And easy! I like easy. Thanks for the tip!

  3. I have a cookbook that includes all my grandmother's family favorite recipes - it is a prized possession! Your crazy quilt blocks sound like a lot of fun!

  4. I wish I could quilt. And yes, that oatmeal looks delicious.

  5. I love that photo of the girls being girls. :-)

  6. Recipe books like that are wonderful. :-) I like those blocks.

  7. All my cookbooks are yellowed and stained.

  8. After reading your post I am convinced that women collect recipes for the memories. Thinking back my mil would sit and look at one of her cook books she put together for hours and not make anything. The recipes were a collection from her mother, grand mother and great aunt although I am sure additional favorites from other places were added too. Thank you for the memory and for linking up to Put your foot down. Love the crazy quilt blocks too.

  9. Hi Sherrie! I am a quiet collector of recipes. I don't have many cookbooks per se, but I have tons of them printed out from the internet. Somewhere, I also have recipe boxes from my mom and sister. I just couldn't bring myself to throwing them away plus I enjoy seeing their handwriting. I agree with Denise's idea that we save them for the memories. ~smile~ Roseanne


Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!
