One thing is for certain,
These are uncertain times;
And this world in which we are living,
Offers little peace of mind.

We sail on troubled waters,
And we walk on shakey ground;
But there is a source of strength
that I have found.

There hangs inside my Grandfather's house;
A picture on the wall,
Of my Grandfather's father,
Standing strong and tall;

I stare into his face sometimes,
And gaze into his eyes;
There's just something there
That helps me realize,

That there's a family tree surrounding me,
Reminding me, that I do not stand alone,
And in my darkest hour, in my greatest time of need,
I'm strengthened by the roots of
My Family Tree.

I think of Grandmother and Grandfather,
How they worked hard to provide;
Now I see how much their love was
Just how much they sacrificed;

To know their love is timeless,
Though we're far away and grown;
Help me see that I am
Never all alone.

If God should grant me children,
To raise upon this earth;
I pray that I can teach them
The measure of their worth;

Not in terms of money,
Or in what they may achieve;
But in their being one more branch
Of the Family Tree.

There's a family tree surrounding me,
Reminding me, that I do not stand alone;
And in my darkest hours,
In my greatest time of need
I'm strengthened by the roots of,
My Family Tree.

Fluffy Chocolate Pancakes
As a change from conventional pancakes, these Fluffy Chocolate Pancakes would be a nice treat for Mother's Day.

This recipe adds a chocolate twist to the favorite classic pancake. It produces light, airy pancakes that get their flavor from unsweetened cocoa powder. Baking with cocoa powder saves time because it eliminates pre-melting steps required with other chocolate baking products.
Top the pancakes with whipped cream and fresh sliced strawberries for a luscious combination that would make an appealing centerpiece for a Mother's Day celebration breakfast.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Whipped topping
Fresh strawberries, sliced

Combine flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and baking soda in medium bowl. Combine buttermilk, egg and oil in separate bowl; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir just until moistened.

Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto preheated, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes on each side, turning to cook second side when pancakes have a bubbly surface. Serve warm with whipped topping and strawberries, if desired.

Makes 8 to 10 pancakes.
Acquired recipe from Hershey Foods.

Our Mother use to make this salad.
Traditional Southern style was whatever fresh fruit that you might have: apples, oranges, bananas, grapes, chopped into bite size and then a can of fruit cocktail (added to keep fruit from turning brown), and coconut-then chill.
Another version is just oranges, coconut, & powdered sugar.

1 pkg. Philly creme cheese
1 pint of whipping cream (the real stuff)
1 c. coconut
1 can mixed fruit cocktail
1 small can marachino cherries

Whip up the whipping cream nice and stiff, but frothy; soften and then blend in the cream cheese; turn in the coconut; add the fruit cocktail and marachino cherries. Put in the refrigerator overnight. Serve with dinner dessert the next day

I came across a recipe book from Dow City, Iowa, published in 1910. There are a few recipes from Rudd [external link] I thought I would pass them on. {They sure sound good, don"t they? Guess they didn"t think about fat grams and cholesterol back then!}

potatoes [7] small or large in size
milk, a pint
onions, [3] small
salt and pepper
crackers, 1/2 dozen
butter, size of egg

Use the potato water from the potatoes you cook for dinner. Mash 3 large or small potatoes fine and add the potato water, a pint of milk or cream, 3 small onions, salt and pepper to taste, 1/2 doz. crackers, and butter size of an egg. Let all boil together 7 minutes.
