Do you have a vintage recipe to link up? I encourage you to link your family's favorite recipes or ones from an old cookbook or recipe postcard.

  3. Susan and Russ: I see I'm bringing back pleasant memories for both of you with this raisin pie. :-) There's no good reason why raisin pies have fallen out of fashion. They are so tasty. Thank you for sharing your own vintage recipes with me.
