About This Project

My Aunt Carol (Giampa) was a life long cook and the holder of my family's culinary traditions. When she passed, her recipe collection came to me. Having learned many of my cooking skills from her and forging traditions of my own, I am honored and challenged to explore the many recipes of her mother and aunts that never made it into my repertoire. Many of these recipes are desserts. This project is an attempt to both memorialize Aunt Carol (or Jumpy as she was known to most others) and explore/test/review these old family recipes. Join me?

Grandmother's Applesauce Cake

This is the original but my aunt's polished copy was the same and this has so much character how could I resist? The note on Aunt Carol's copy said "Margaret's grandmother, 1886." Margaret was a friend of my aunt's whom she loved very much. I think they were each other's adopted mother and daughter.
