I acquired a genuine cooking artifact a couple of years ago by way of Ebay--a Watkins Family Cookbook.
I've been flipping through it tonight and getting quite a chuckle. I'm amazed at the amounts of "lard", "grease", "fat" and "drippings" used in the recipes.
I'll share some of my favorites with you soon.
There's a barbecue sauce recipe I plan to try. If it's any good I'll post it here.
