These Old Time Recipes from the file of Mrs. Johnson who  lived in Canadian, Texas. She had a number of recipes she saved from the local newspaper, magazines and friends. Most recipes date back to the 40s, 50s, and 60s. She had a unique way of storing her recipes. After she cut them out she pasted them into an old catalog. Thank you Ida Lancaster for sharing your mother’s recipes with us. There are some recipes from old time recipe books as well. The date will be posted by those recipes.
