Reply Paul M. on December 30, 2006 at 6:02 pm Yes, she was an inimitable character. Do you know that she wrote a cookbook about fruitcake? It may still be available or as remaindered. It has many interesting and historic fruitcake recipes in it along with her recollections of making them to give for the holidays decades ago. If anyone is interested I can provide you with her name and the title -or the ISBN. Just email me. Cheers!

We were very good actors and said things like “Oh, wow. great. thanks! merry christmas to you, too.” Then we’d throw it away… I’ve never had good fruitcake. Perhaps I need a good recipe… Reply Submit a Comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
