Default Re: Christmas cookies

Off topic.

I have seen several polls and comments lately about whether schools should continue to teach cursive handwriting to kids. And whether today's little kids can read cursive.

I maintain that they can read most cursive, since it looks enough like printing to understand.

Do any of you know of children that you can show Chowderman's wife's recipe card to, to see if they can read it?

What are your opinions on this subject?

Just curious.

Lee



boy does DW do a job on cookies.... or _what_!

Default Re: Cursive writing

being the baby of the family,,, and curiously the only one with serious cooking interests . . . I have three boxes of "recipe cards"

my grandmother's, my great aunt's (never married), my mother's - who combined her sister's stuff into her box. a lot of duplicates - as recipes got passed around the family...

I really need to go through a comb out the super cookies and the 'old favorites'
it's a daunting task!
