Have you heard of the blog Handwritten Recipes?

From the title alone, you'd never guess its interesting twist. What a fun find!
The featured recipes are anything but ordinary. They happen to have been discovered, tucked inside completely unrelated books
Each begs a back-story
Did a neighbor drop by with a recipe? Was it solicited or forced on the cook and relegated to bookmark status? A husband reading while enjoying the morning's coffee, marking his place with the cookie recipe instead of a scrap of paper?
The world may never know, but it sure is fun to speculate
Some seem to go together naturally. The Thesaurus of Humor or the book with cocktail recipes tucked inside. I bet there were some great stories from that night!
Others make you go hummm ….
Like a fudge recipe on the back of a memorandum from the D&H Railroad, found in “Starburst” by Frederick Pohl.
(ps: Wouldn't it make for a great book club idea. Read a book from the list and make the associated recipe?)
Have a Happy Tuesday!
