"This is my 3 month old granddaughter wearing a dress made from her great great great grandmother's pillowcase she had crocheted. She was named after her great great grandmother, Adeline, and a great grandmother, Fern. She was born on her another great great grandmother's birthday, June 1st, missing GGgrandmother Adeline's birthday by 3 minutes. Names and Crocheted pillowcase may be vintage, but the wearer is adorable. Janet from Oregon"

One day while getting the white clothes out of the dryer, my daughter about 2 or 3 at the time was ‘helping’ me … she proceeded to tell me as I was taking the clothes out “Apple .. Apple .. Apple”. I told her “ Honey there are no apples in the dryer” but she insisted “Apple, Apple, Apple”. Well as I was folding the clothes, I realized she was right…. Fruit of the Loom underwear label does have an apple on it !!!! I have never doubted her since when she proclaims to see something. Pam

9. A Vintage Recipe
Be sure to check out our vintage recipe archive online at: http://www.tias.com/newsletter/topics/A%20Vintage%20Recipe.html Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.

Bill requested an easy recipe for "Pizza Crustf" . Several of our readers sent in the following.....

2-ingredient pizza dough recipe

This fast and easy pizza dough is perfect for when you don't
have time to wait for dough to prove or to play around with yeast.

1 Cup self raising flour
1 Cup of Greek or natural yoghurt

Extra flour for dusting the board

In a bowl, combine the flour and yoghurt and bring together to form a ball.

Turn out onto a floured board to knead and roll.

Knead for 5-8 minutes. Roll into a pizza shape and add toppings.

This quantity is suitable for one pizza. This makes a great base that you can
use for so many other things such as cheese and bacon scrolls and garlic
bread. If the dough seems a little wet when you mix it, just add a sprinkling more
flour. The more you knead it the better it comes together. I thought in the
beginning that there was no way this will work but as I kneaded it, the dough became
pliable and stretchy. Thanks to Anne & Margaret

10. A vintage recipe request from a reader
As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.

It's that time of year when people make a bizarre drink called Egg Nog. I'm looking for a new favorite recipe without alcohol .. Bev
