This is a great idea for a website... I have a lot of handwritten recipes from my grandmother. They are so interesting. Windows on the past. And I love the strange congruencies of recipes in random books.

I find it interesting that the recipe is written on the back of what looks like a receipt. Is it a receipt for the book? Now I'm curious about the origins of that slip of paper!

It's a receipt from a grocery store.
