In Memory of her Son
Here is a recipe that Robbie loved:
My Grandmother's Pound Cake

2 cups butter (NOT oleo), softened to room temperature
2 cups sugar
6 eggs, at room temperature
dash of salt
2 tsp. real vanilla
2 cups flour

I often set out the butter and eggs overnight, to come to room temperature, and then bake the cake early the next morning.

Beat the sugar and the softened butter until very smooth and creamy.Add all 6 eggs and beat on low until mixed; then turn on high and beat for at least 5 minutes, or until the sugar is
completely dissolved.

Stir in the salt and 2 tsp. vanilla and beat until smooth.
Add the flour, one cup at a time, and beat just until smooth.
Spoon into a Bundt pan or Turk's Head pan that has been buttered and floured.

Bake at 325 for approximately 50 minutes before checking; may need to bake
for a full hour. Test for doneness with a toothpick.

Serve warm or room temperature, plain or with ice cream or fruit. Will store well if kept in aluminum foil---if it isn't devoured
all at the first sitting, that is! There is no leavening needed; this cake will rise to fill the pan. Saralyn

Here is another recipe---Robbie's favorite dinner and the one I cooked for him the night before he died. It has always comforted me that on his last day with us, he had all his favorites: pancakes for breakfast, a crispy chicken sandwich for lunch, and my barbecued brisket for dinner.

Robbie's Favorite Barbecued Brisket

4 to 7 lbs. brisket, with most outside fat removed
2 to 4 tbs. Liquid Smoke
Onion Salt
Garlic Salt

Rub the Liquid Smoke on the outside of the brisket; also rub with the onion
salt and garlic salt. Wrap tightly in foil and refrigerate for several
hours (or overnight).
Place tightly wrapped brisket in baking dish and bake at 300 degrees (slow
oven) for 5 and 1/2 hours. Let cool; pour off fat; slice.

Make a Sauce with the following ingredients:

3 tbs. brown sugar (packed firmly)
14-oz. of ketchup
1/2 cup water
2 tbs. Liquid Smoke
Dash of salt and pepper
4 tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbs. DRY mustard (NOT prepared mustard)
2 tsp. celery seed
6 tbs. butter

Mix all the above ingredients and bring to boil in a medium saucepan.
Have the sliced brisket lying on aluminum foil in a baking pan. Pour the hot sauce over the sliced brisket. Wrap the brisket completely and tightly in the foil; bake for one hour at 350 degrees.

Makes from 8 to 12 servings. If not completely eaten up at the first
sitting, rewrap in foil and refrigerate. Can be reheated the next day.

I usually serve this with mashed potatoes and a green vegetable,but it also makes fabulous sandwiches.
