Here is my recipe box for The Grandma Mabel Memorial Recipe Box Show & Tell Contest
This is my "fancy’ one, with my favorite recipes printed on 4×6 inch cards, using Mastercook software. The file folder, however, contains MC printouts, (several copies from when I can’t find what I want) newspaper and magazine clippings, etc. and is what I usually cook from.
While not really from my box, I wanted to share my father’s recipe for BBQ sauce. This was for the Lions Club Chick-n-que. He had a brass exterminator’s sprayer with which he applied the sauce to 1,500 halves. Note: the mineral spirits is for starting the fire, not adding to the sauce.
Also, here is my mother, Kitty Barnett’s, recipe for a special occasion nibble.
Nippy Cheese Wafers.
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup butter
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper
3/4 cup nuts, finely chopped
Mix and shape into rolls. Wrap in wax paper and chill overnight. Slice thin, bake at 350 degrees until light brown. Dough may be frozen
