As a food blogger, you know that the stars are aligned when you read a recipe and realize that you have everything you need in the pantry.
I also like the recipe because it was created in 1964. I believe there were Hippies in the Kitchen in 1964!
I share a blog titled Yesterfood and she posted this recipe and a story about Bisquick.
You can access the Yesterfood Blog on the right of my Blog, under Blogs I follow.
I love a simple recipe, love it when I have all of the ingredients and I love vintage recipes.
I also love to peruse vintage recipe books.
We attend the Mennonite MCC Sale in Kansas ( Mennonite Central Committee) and the first booth I visit is the one where they sell recipe and cook books. I have an impressive collection.
Many , or most of them, are from Mennonite and Amish homes.
The hand written ones are my favorites.
Someday I'll post some of the vintage recipes.
I wanted to share this one from Yesterfood.
I learned a lesson when I made this bread. Make sure that your Bisquick is fresh. I think my bread would have risen more if my Bisquick had been fresher. You know how long those boxes can sit in the pantry before you realize you need it!
