Gladys Owens

I love it when I find a hand-written recipe in second hand recipe book. I find it intriguing, wondering who took the time to write it down, and whether it was a favourite dish passed down from one friend to another.

My grandmother, Gladys Owens, was a really great cook – adventurous, creative and sharing her love of her family through the beautiful meals and treats she prepared.

She passed away nearly 9 years ago, and one of the things I treasure that she left behind are a few precious recipes in her own hand-writing. I don’t necessarily think they’re her best recipes, but the fact I can see her unique words in print make them special to me. This recipe, ‘Nig-Nogs’ is one I remember tasting, freshly baked, and I think it could be the same recipe she used when she smuggled biscuits in to maximum security prisoners at our local prison (but thats another story altogether….). I still miss her, but I think of her when I’m cooking something for the one’s I love…
