One of my prize possessions is the recipe box that contains this card. This is my great-grandmother’s cinnamon bread recipe, hand-written by my mother, who died more than ten years ago. I make the cinnamon bread every year at Christmas and Easter. There are other cards in the box in my grandmother’s handwriting, and lots of old recipes that came from who knows where.
I didn’t find my mother easy to get along with, but one place we were always at home together was in the kitchen.
