Villisca Cooking School



 
Well, we finally made it to the last recipe in the old recipe box. It's a missing section from a cooking program brochure we discovered earlier in the box you can see here. I hope you enjoyed our little journey, and maybe even found a recipe or two to try. If you are discovering this blog after the end just look over the list of recipes on the left and click on whatever sounds enticing. Bon App├ętit!

Jell-O Cake


 
My wife has made a similar version of this Jell-O cake recipe for years. The fact that she is still making it for holidays and get togethers might speak to the popularity of the dessert. You can experiment with different Jell-O flavors until you find your favorite combination.

Wednesday

Orange Sauce


 
While reading through the ingredients for this topping I could almost imagine the mixture of lemon and orange swirling over my taste buds, especially when combined with ginger bread as the recipe suggests.

Monday

Lemon Ice Box Cake



 
This lemon and pineapple cake would make for a nice cool treat on a hot summer day. The crushed graham cracker crust would give it a slightly crunchy texture and add another dimension to the flavor. On the back we find the paper was originally used as a church ballot.

Friday

Fruit Dessert



 
Not only is this recipe lacking a name, I can't even figure out what it would make. My best guess is some kind of a fruit dessert, so that's what I'm calling it. On the other side is a blank form for a local farm route service.

Wednesday

Chocolate Candy


 
The note at the bottom of this hastily written recipe indicates it is for chocolate candy, but I think it would be best if the reader searched for a complete recipe online or in a trusted cookbook.

Monday

Jiffy White Cake


 
The most interesting part of this recipe is not the recipe itself, which I imagine makes a decent cake, but the cryptic message written inside of the first fold. What could have been the purpose of lying about going to the restroom to get out of class and fetch the mysterious Church Key?
