She’s also the wife of Spike and the mother of Aunt Boyd/Boyd’s friend Jerry and Uncle Billy/Bill’s friend Steve.)

In Uncategorized on April 19, 2010 at 8:42 am

1 Can Condensed milk
1 large Cool whip
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 Cups Coconut instead 1 bottle Marchino cherries
1 1/2 Cups pineapple
1 1/2 ” nuts chopped

2 large graham crumb crust

chill

(Editor’s note: I’m guessing you just stir all these ingredients together, then dump them in the pie crusts and refrigerate for a while?)

Creamy Caramel Icing

In Uncategorized on April 12, 2010 at 8:30 am

2 C Brown sugar
1 T Crisco
1 T Corn syrup
1/2 C milk
1/3 C Crisco
2 1/2 C Confectioners sugar
4 T hot milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Boil first 4 ingredients to 235 degrees f (or when soft ball forms in cold water)

Combine Crisco, confectioners sugar vanilla & milk; beat until smooth

Pour hot syrup over Crisco mixture. Beat until thick and creamy.

(Editor’s note: This recipe is not the same as the one that Aunt Julia/Great Aunt Julia used to fill her Caramel Cake, but it was in Grandma/Momma/Bee’s recipe clippings.

Note the back of the recipe for some family wedding dates, and also for what looks to be a few shopping lists. Do you think these numbers are prices? If so, what year do you think this would have been? I bet Aunt Julia remembers prices like these!)

(Editor’s note: As you can see, the front of the first Polaroid reads, “Julia, Howard, Bee, Floy 1988.” Do any of you recognize where this was?)

Ham Biscuits

(Editor’s note: Not many men could pull off those shorts, but Uncle Billy/Bill appears to be doing it in style. Uncle Billy, where on earth are you here? Who’s the damsel by your side?

Aunt Julie/Julie, Uncle Billy’s reigning queen, has informed me that his favorite Grandma/Momma/Bee meal “was (and still is!) her strawberry pie, ham, sweet potato casserole, butter beans and rice.” )

Fresh Strawberry Pie

In 3-Wilhelmina (Bee) Garris King 1918-2007 on April 8, 2010 at 7:30 am

1960

Bake Pie shell & let cool

Wash 1 quart fresh strawberries

Cut up 1 cup for filling & place rest in fridge with sugar

Mix 1 cup water with the cup strawberries above and add
1 cup sugar
4 tablespoon Corn starch
Add Red food coloring for color

Boil until thick & let cool. If too thick add water. If too thin add more starch dissolved in water. It will thicken some as it cools. Cool. Mix together with fresh strawberries & place in pie shell. Place in fridge for an hour or two. Top with Cool whip. Serve.

(Editor’s note: The words above come from the blue-and-white checkered recipe, not the notecards, since it gives more detail. The blue-and-white checkered card comes from a memory book called “The Keepsake Recipe Collection” that Aunt Boyd gave Grandma, to encourage her to write all her kitchen creations down.)

PEACH ICE CREAM

In 3-Evelyn Floy Garris 1910-1997, FAMILY: BROTHER & SISTERS (BEE) on April 7, 2010 at 5:46 am

2 C WATER
3/4 C POWDER MILK
2 1/2 T FLOUR MIXED IN 1/2 C WATER
3 EGGS BEATEN
1 C SUGAR
WATER

SCALD MIILK AND ADD WATER AND FLOUR. THEN EGG AND SUGAR MIXTURE. CHILL AND ADD 1 CAN (TALL) CARNATION MILK AND 3 C PEACHES. FREEZE.

(Editor’s note: Grandma/Momma/Bee only had one recipe for ice cream among the recipes she clipped and wrote down — and that one was for artificially-sweetened peach ice cream — so his one comes to us from her sister, Floy.

Do you think the instructions intend for us to whip the Carnation milk? Or whip the entire batch after it’s frozen?)

(Note: The back of this photo says “Boyd at cornation,” so I’m guessing it was for Acteens. Aunt Boyd, was this at First Baptist? Where’d you get that dress, and what year would this have been? Who were these little people at your side?)

Chocolate Ice Cream

In 3-Evelyn Floy Garris 1910-1997, FAMILY: BROTHER & SISTERS (BEE) on April 7, 2010 at 5:28 am

3/4 cup HERSHEY’S Chocolate Flavored Syrup

(Editor’s note: This recipe comes from Aunt Floy’s three-ring keepsake notebook filled with recipe clippings. Note that it allows you to “Enjoy Delicious Homemade Ice Cream WITHOUT AN ICE CREAM MAKER.” The recipe also gives tips as how to use this ice cream in a pie crust and parfaits.)
