I have to say that as I began this journey, I found that old cookbooks became my friends, the older the better, I love anything prior to about 1970 cookbooks and when I can get my hands on more antiquated ones, I smile. I even have one that is so old it talks about using wet yeast lumps in your bread...I'm not sure you can even buy that any longer.
Auctions and garage sales are also some of my favorite places to locate these gems.
So, what do I make from scratch? Some of our family's favorites are:
Egg Noodles (Grandpa's old family recipe)
