I have to confess that while I cook through the recipe collection of Grandma Edna, I feel somewhat like Amy Adams in Julie & Julia. While I'm not cooking through Julia Child's collection, or trying to master the art of French cooking, I'm cooking and baking recipes of a woman who was known for her excellent cooking. I can tell by the simplicity of the recipe card that Grandma Edna had many of the recipes in her head.
