the Ladys Pen
Aunt Larcenys Peach Gobble is something of a fond family legend at Contrary Corners, recounted at regular intervals with a wink and a twinkle in the eye, even though the aunt in question was actually from somebody elses family, and most likely (or at least hopefully) not larcenous. When Isadora was but a young girl, even then a fanatical recipe-collector, she often pored over her maternal grandmothers many cookbooks at the family farm. Isadoras little brother joined in on one occasion, when just learning to read, and the above title is his amusingly creative rendering of a recipe from a local church cookbook: Aunt Lauras Peach Cobbler. Though this dish does indeed deserve to be gobbled (and the recipe will be appearing here soon, along with other recipes from Isadora, Lykaina, and others), the burning question remains: What was such a very little boy doing knowing the word larceny, anyway??? ;-)
More to come!
