The above  is from the  – – “November 17, 1991, Southwest County Sunday  Home Journal, – Page 1B” – – — “Family Favorites Recipe Contest” —-

“Suzanne Cuccione” 31 -year-old  Oakville, Missouri resident – – took top honors – – receiving the BLUE RIBBON Award and  $50.00 first place – – in the annual cooking competition and  the winning recipe was the “Family Favorite – –  – “Fresh Apple Cake – – – with  Cinnamon Butter” – – this is a recipe that she modified – – and in checking the ingredients and how she prepared this – – I feel that I will be trying this version  – – of the “RAW APPLE CAKE”  – – just as soon as is possible  – – since  – – what she has changed – – I can already tell this would be a favorite at our home – –  – – and everyone  – – that likes apples in a cake recipe – –  should give it a  try, too – – –  and see if you  – – like this update.

There is a recipe that I was looking for – –  the “Quick Cornstarch Pudding” that is made in a very short amount of time using  the Microwave – –  – such a QUICK and easy way to have good PUDDING – – and you can so easily make it – –  chocolate and or  coco-nut  – or what ever your favorite  may be.

The copy of this recipe – – that – –  I am looking  for – –  is somewhere amongst so many cook-books and  millions of loose copies of recipes and cut-outs from newspapers and such – – – –  a collection – – that has been collected  for at least the last sixty (60) or more years.  

Collecting of recipes – – started with my MOM and  her sister, my AUNT Irene Brady Riley – – – and since I also have my MOM’s cook-book from HIGH SCHOOL – –  – my collection of recipes – – some  of which – – could be as old as  seventy (70) years old – –  –  but like collectors of stuff – –  I knew that – –  I had the “Cuccione  Recipe” – – but since – –  I was not looking for it – – never dreamed  – –  that I would find it – – –  usually I do not find that which – —  I am looking for  – – exactly and  when I want  too – – – but someday  – – it will just find “a way”  to my hands – – and then I will have to  THANK – – the ALMIGHTY – – for sending it to a place – to where if can be found  – by me!

Since this  – – is a  HOLIDAY  weekend – – with extra days to be with FAMILY and FRIENDS – – let us all – – get into the “COOKING UP SOMETHING – –  GOOD”   – –  to share with those we  LOVE!
