Fleur de Lolly digs into grandmother’s recipes for spring desserts

Long-time readers of my blog and column will remember reading about my Grandmother Clara. She was an amazing woman who had many talents. After she passed away in 2007, I was blessed to receive her recipes that she kept in a large holiday tin.

The recipes include a variety of salads, casseroles and desserts. Recently, I spent several enjoyable hours taking a stroll down memory lane reading recipes from years ago.

I love that these two cake recipes were my grandmother’s; the carrot cake was baked in the pan that belonged to my mother; the cream cheese mint recipe is one I’ve used for over 35 years, and they are plated on a pink Depression-era serving tray that was my grandmother’s.

I know that’s a doozy of a run-on sentence, but it’s important to me to share this column’s family history with you.
