This section is named Kathryn's Corner in honor of my grandmother, who passed away in 2008, and who was a magician in the kitchen in her own simple way. Among some of her belongings that came to me was a little cookbook compiled by the good ladies of her parish, who got together and pooled their recipes. In the index were hundreds of time-tested household "fix-its" and "do-its." I found a ton of helpful tips on cleaning, storing food, sewing, and other general domestic wisdom. I hope some of these tips are as interesting and useful to you as they are to me. Cheers!
