Welcome to Flour, Sugar, and Eggs!
Welcome to Flour, Sugar, and Eggs! I love trying recipes from days past, both from family sources and old cookbooks. I give my thoughts on them in the blog, and if that inspires you to give them a try they are all listed in my recipe page. Whether you are looking to find something new, or maybe something that your grandma used to make, you have come to the right place.
Thank you to my Grandma for letting me use some of her mother’s recipes, and thank you to my Nanna for recipes from her vintage cookbook collection.
