[QUOTE]looks like we all have a favorite Bread recipe....mine is pumpkin, believe it came from a Firemans Wife in CC. Used to only make it at Christmas time, now I have to do it all year round. My family,friends and neighbors look for it around the holidays. I make stuffed mushrooms too, but no where near as complicated at MMs sound, I'm a quick and easy cook!! I just wash em, cut off stems, chop up fine, chop a small onion up fine, crush up ritz crackers, mix all together, put butter in frying pan, add above, saute till done, if it looks dry, add a bit of water. When done cooking, fill mushrooms, put on cookie sheet, cook in oven at 350 for about 10 min. Yum, Yum.....DD and I put them together, then we eat em, do give DH a few!! ss

You know..I think "A Fireman's wife"was my Grandmother
When she passed...we found a lot of Confidential Chat letters addressed to "A Fireman's Wife" and she was that...a wife of a Fireman. But I don't know for sure.
The story in our family goes like this...my Grandfather loved her....He approached her Father about having her hand in marriage....Her Mother and Father said,"Yes, She is a beauty, but you must know this...she can only make lemonade and fudge" My Grandfather didn't care...he earned his way to their respect and won her hand against many other suitors.
It makes sense that she would reach out to the Confidential Chat to hone her cooking skills, and I know she did...she became an excellent home cook...but I never knew her "nom" ...I do believe she was "A Fireman's Wife" from what we found after she passed
