Some are just ingredients written down, no instructions on what to do with them.
I found one that has the instructions on how to make a brine for preserving meat. And if you like liver patties, the "how to" was clipped out of an old yellow, brittle newspaper.
Christmas candy like Divinity and Penuche. Million Dollar Fudge. I remember the kitchen smelling so yummy during Christmas, and to have the handwritten recipes of these favorites is priceless.
I made one recipe for dinner tonight. It was one of the clipped out ones, and had the title above it "The Winners Recipe".

1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
2 T. honey
4 pork chops

( I wrote it out exactly as it was printed. Very brief and simple!)
They did come out very tender, and such a sweet flavor. We enjoy this recipe.
