About the blog
From 1939 to 1943 Nana Ling carefully recorded her recipes in a notebook.
She noted the date, the source, the ingredients and the method.
She recorded hundreds of wonderful recipes, from classic sweets that we still love today to forgotten gems.
That notebook eventually found its way to me, Libby, her great granddaughter.
