Contributed by : Jo House

      A very sophisticated name for a bunch of women to get together and discuss recipes and homemaking tips! I found this in a very old cookbook that I've determined was my g-grandmother Brandhorst.
Lots of old newspaper clippings of events and recipes, notes on using such things as yeast and more recipes, etc. I'll be happy to share the recipe for "suet pudding" or one of several recipes for doughnuts!
(Now I know why I LOVE doughnuts . . .. . she must have as well!)                                 Jo House
