They're Here...

The Prewitt Family Cookbook
Filled with delicious recipes like baked potato soup, old settlers baked beans (which is about the only way I would ever eat a lima bean), Fay's hash browns, shrimp gumbo, chicken pot pie, chicken chimichangas, pumpkin sheet cake, chocolate chip cheesecake, applesause drop cookies, and SO many more! Even Grandma's angel food cake recipe.
Mmm....I remember Grandma making that angel food cake with a peanut butter frosting! She raised chickens and I remember a time when they were laying something fierce and had SO many eggs! 
Did you know it takes 12 large egg whites for each cake?
And if you don't have cake flour to use, that you can sift regular all-purpose flour several times (can't remember how many exactly) to get the same effect as cake flour?
Ask me how I know this! LOL

Also filled with pages of the usual helpful hints and tips....from using herbs and spices to how to fold a napkin.

I didn't know you were related to Roscoe. We were in school together! I would love to have one of your family's cookbooks. Do you have them at the Mercantile?
