Solomon Recipes

I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

But, no need to share the last name Solomon. The majority of the recipes are made by me, Mother Goose, my Sister in law, Gretchen and two friends Leta and HK. If you would like to be a contributor, just holla!

I found your blog after searching for carrot cake recipes...while scrolling through your pages I found the Christmas Cookie recipe...I've been on the hunt to find a recipe for these that have been passed through generations...always the best. My grandmother used to make these all the time and we can't find her recipe. Thanks for sharing yours! Sandy
