Introduction

e T

his small booklet features three dessert treats from recipes I have garnered over the years from treasured family and friends.

Oatmeal Apple Crisp, A Mother’s Recipe, and Old Fashioned Lemmon Pudding, Richard’s Recipe are both taken from a hand written recipe collection of recipes left to me as an inheritance from a very dear friend, Richard, who has long since passed on. The recipes in this collection are all neatly

handwritten on 4 x 6 sheets of note paper that are now yellowing with age. They have all been 3-hole punched and placed in a blue shiny binder by the cook, my friend Richard’s mother whose name unfortunately I have forgotten. I just know her as “Rick’s Mom”; these fragile documents must be at least 60 or 70 years old.

My childhood friend Susan’s Mom, Assunta or Suzie as we called her made the best Italian donuts, along with my darling grandmother Angie. They are called Sfnge or Zeppole depending upon what section of Italy you come from. These two wonderful Italian women never met but did happen to share the same recipe for Sfnge or Zeppole

Angie and Suzie were an important part of my life and are now are given life in my memories.

Please do try these and enjoy — or as they say in my family, mangia!!!!
