NEEDLESS to point out that
both of the above recipes are for
the woman who is wholly liber-
ated, i.e. free from budget worries.
In the old days the dishes "like
momma used to make" were the
strongest chains that bound fami-
lies together. Generation after
generation of daughters and
daughters-in-law had to learn the
art of preparing family recipes
over long periods of patient years
under the tutelage and super-
vision of the matriarch. These re-
cipes consisted largely of admo-
nitions like "Schutt herein a
handful", "season to taste", and
"knead until it feels right," etc.
Generations of children and
grandchildren time and time

cipes for momma's specialties.

suring, sifting, creaming, chop-
ping, beating, whipping, baking
and washing. And she gladly
passes on her recipes. To wit:
