Recipes from Grandma Briggs

Mrs. Sheen and Myrtie Briggs standing in front of the Methodist Parsonage.

In my vast collection of photos and information related to the Town of Highland, NY, are scans of recipes of my grandmother Myrtie Briggs who lived in Barryville from 1935 to 1945. Her Canadian War Cake was on an earlier post.

Here are a few recipes Grandma had with names of people who lived in the area: Mrs. Lang and Mrs. Steele from Barryville; Mrs. Brodmerkle and Mrs. Clark from Eldred; plus a favorite of mine, Cherry pudding cake, and Chocolate Joy cake, which sounds very good).

    I was privileged to be a member of HLBC from 1971to 1975.

    I started out as a dishwasher and lived up over the kitchen. Then I was a chambermaid and lived in the Barn.

    The following year I was a waitress and I still stayed at the Barn. I ended up being a chambermaid and made up the beds at the old Inn.

    These were the best summers of my life! How I wish I could go back in time… father, Alfred Damizzi was on the Board of Directors, he has since passed. My sister, Diana Damizzi just recently passed two weeks ago and she also adored this place.

    I would love to take a ride up and see what’s cooking now.

    These are recipes that we had at home. Tried-and-true recipes that are very good all of them. My mother was a very good cook!
