Recipes from Poppa Pete

Today we went over to Poppa Pete's. It was the first time we'd seen him since Christmas. We had a chat and spent a bit of time just catching up, then we asked Poppa Pete if he had any recipes he wanted to contribute. He started off giving us a few of his, then, wonder of wonders, he brought out Granny Rhodes (his mother)'s recipe book and Granny Booth (Nana Rose's mother)'s recipe book. AWESOME!! Nana Rose had written a few down too, so we got some of hers as well. It was so great. SO great. :) Check this out - this is the front page of Granny Rhodes' recipe book:
And, I thought it was funny, we found this 'recipe' for knitted bed socks in there!!

Ginger Bread - Mary Steele Ginger Pudding - Kath Mary's Chocolate Cake - Mary Welch (Sue's sister & Steve's aunt) Potted Meat - Geoffrey (not sure if this is Uncle Jon's son Geoffrey or just some random unknown man) Sand Cake - Ann Rhodes Susan's Devils Food Cake - Susan Rhodes (have photos of Jim making this for the kids birthday this year!) - 'Is a good recipe. Really good.' Tomato Sauce - Betty Stephenson (Poppa Pete's sister) I was so pleased and excited that when we got home from Poppa Pete's, I went through our recipes and got the ones we'll be contributing. :) Steve: Banana Lemon Cake - with a photo of the one he made me to take to work that says 'Happy Birthday DollyB' on it. Ha ha! Devils Food Cake - an Eves Pantry recipe that unfortunately makes 18 cakes. Not 18 servings but 18 whole cakes. lol That's the problem with commercial baking recipes. But I have a picture of my 21st cake which was made using that recipe to go with it, and it's neat to include as part of Steve's baking history. Apparently they sold it to Starbucks, so if you bought Devils Food Cake in NZ, this was what you were buying... Chocolate Cake - this is his most popular recipes and I have photos of about seven different cakes to go with this one!! Sweetcorn Fritters Pancakes Bacon & Egg Pie Banana Cake Melting Moments Lemon & Yoghurt Cake Sachertorte Biscotti Christmas Fruit Mix Christmas Mince Pies Christmas Cake Elle: Jamie Oliver's Winter Pudding Bombe - we made this and took it to the belated Christmas dinner we had at Sue & Jim's, so I have lots of photos of the kids and I making it. :) Spring Rolls - not sure about putting these in, but I have photos of the kids making them! Sushi - another one I'm not sure about putting in, but I have photos of! Toad In The Hole - this is a Gordon Ramsay book from the book Lynda bought me, and I have photos of it too! Beef Olives
