    Needle,ladle and cradle

    Was the name I used back in the 60's when the chat was part of everyday life.  I saved many recipes from Aunti Mimo, Irish Indian, Medico and so many more. I think my Mother and I tried every recipe ever printed.  Does anyone else remember that time?  I still use many of the recipes and would love to purchase a copy of the cookbook, is that possible?

    Hi cj,

    You've come to the right place - some of us go way back to the newspaper days, where the editor would kindly forward a stack of letters to us.  I started writing in the 60's when my toddler's favorite toy was a "toy trumpet", hence my nom.  Yes, the recipes from Irish Indian, Fireman's Wife, Medico, were always among the best.  I too, still have a lot of yellowed copies of them, they have been favorites over the years.  There are several of us who chat now, who are holdovers from those days.  In fact, Icer just shared with us that her grandmother was Fireman's Wife.  When she passed away the family found a stash of letters addressed to her, that had been forwarded by the Globe Editor. 

    We have brought it up to the Globe before, about the re-publishing of those wonderful recipes, but I don't believe they've put together another cookbook.  I know there originally was one, Pingo may be the one who mentioned having a copy.

    Feel free to jump over and join in the CC conversation at any time, we share recipes, problems, good times, humor, pet stories (and pictures), gardening, you name it, pretty much like the old days.  We'd be glad to have you join in.

    Dear toytrumpet, thank you so much for responding.  I would love to become a part of your discussions, recipes etc.  I am not sure just how to access your group. This site is new to me.  If I hadn't read "project recipe box" I would have been completely unaware that this site existed.

    Hi, cj!  I don't go back that far, but I know and love those here who do.  You tried every recipe?  That's pretty impressive.  See you around!

    Dear Kargiver, after reading your post I realized I was probably exagerating saying that my Mother and I must have tried every recipe but it sure seems like we did.  After reading about the recipe box project I did go through some that I had kept and made a spice cake.  You boil almost all the ingredients (except dry ingr.)  it is very spicy but really good.  I wish I could get my hands on the original cook book but I don't think that will happen.

    Was Debra Samuels supposed to be a Globe reporter?

    Camille, let me be another one welcoming you to the Chat. We love to have you. Some of "us" old chatters found each other again on this forum. When I say again - it means we contributed to the printed Chat, which is no more. But in a way, I am glad it is no more. We have had so many new Chatters join us. Young and strong. They contribute so much to the Chat forum. Love them all.
    Like tt, I hope you will hop over to the daily Chat column to join us. Sounds like you have a lot to contribute. Welcome! - Pingo
