From Tomato Aspic to more recipes for Pumpkin Pie than you can imagine, this indexed CD is an amazing guide to lost recipes and fun treats.The bulk of this collection of several hundred recipes was the pride and joy of an amazing cook named Julie Tucholka. She started clipping these in 1935 and continued until she passed away in 1996. Rather than let these scrapbooks fade into history, they were scanned into PDF and included here.
Also included is Rich Tucholka's "Damn Strange Cookbook" with several award winning recipes that he has been feeding guests and Sci-

4 large ribs of celery
1 large onion
5 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp white pepper
1 large bottle Great White Northern Beans
Cover ham bone(s) with water, add whole celery, onion, carrots. Boil until meat falls off bones and vegetables are cooked. Strain all using a colander and save the liquid. Cut ham, celery, and carrots into small pieces. Place back in pot. Replace liquid and add beans. Add salt and pepper and stir. Add bacon. Simmer until heated. Variations: add a little flour to thicken, add a small can of corn, or add a bay leaf. Store leftovers in plastic or glass, or bag and freeze for future use.
