This recipe was from my Grandma. It was one of my Grandpa’s favorites. It is simple and very yummy!
The recipe is handwritten on a recipe card for me from my Grandma. One of my cousin’s made a recipe book for me when I was getting married and asked friends and family to send recipes for it. This was one that my Grandma contributed to my book.
I love her handwritten note on the back ~
“I put the whole eggs in as Grandpa doesn’t care for meringue. The egg whites are for meringue on top. Do to suit your man.”
“What good advice!” I thought to myself as I read it recently. Not only was she sharing a favorite recipe with me, but also effortlessly and unknowingly passing down wisdom on caring for “your man”.
It’s so sweet and I love seeing it in her words and handwriting.
I’ve had the recipe pulled out and piled in among my papers and planner for a while. I thought of it towards late summer and it sounded good. I hadn’t made it for a long time.
It was fun to make and eat again!
