Do you love passing down recipes?
The Secret Apple Oatmeal Muffin Recipe from the Corse Family Farm is a passed down family recipe. This is the memory tugging from childhood kind of recipe. Aren’t those the best?
There is a lot to be said for passing recipes down to the family and friends. So much of the pleasure in our lives can come from childhood memories sitting around the table and the traditions we have developed with our families. There may be other recipes similar in idea to what we remember growing up but, they are never quite right to our taste buds memories.
Why did I start food blogging?
One of the reasons I started blogging recipes, is to make sure mine are passed on to my children, future grandchildren and friends. My grandmother taught me to make some of her specialties and if she didn’t pass the recipes on to me, they would have been lost for eternity.
I would compare recipes to hearing that song that always brings back memories.
he recipes we’ve indulged in growing up are a part of our history.

Apple Oatmeal Muffins from the Corse Family Farm
(originally posted by the Organic Valley Farm Co Op)
“This recipe came from my dad’s Aunt Florence, a woman whose love shined through her cooking. She would bring out a woven basket with a lovely tea cloth and my dad would practically clap with delight. Years later, I started making them on Christmas Eve after everyone went to sleep, to leave under the tree: a piece of the magic from the Christmas elves. – Abbie Corse, Organic Valley Farmer-Owner”
