Ham Roulades from Stephenson’s Family Restaurants Receipts, 1967:  Doesn’t this sound perfect for Christmas morning?  I bet you could even make the cheese sauce the night before.   (I know, after you finish assembling the toys.)

Ham Roulades from Stephenson’s Restaurants Receipts

Yeas, we have the cookbook.  See it here:

Stephenson’s Restaurants Receipts: Old Family Secret Recipes. Copyright 1967. Privately printed. This booklet is from the 1981 printing. Comfort food before there was comfort food! Stephenson’s were located in Kansas City. I think we’ll have the ham roulades for Christmas breakfast. Spiral bound. Small booklet. 52 pages. Mint condition.

At we try to provide you with your mother’s cookbook! I know lots of current recipe bloggers write proudly that their recipes are “not from your mother’s cookbook.” We think the recipes in your mother’s cookbook provided food that was nutritious and warm and colorful and just plain yummy! We know that just looking at the cover of your mother’s Woman’s Home Companion Cook Book makes you feel good. Holding her Betty Crocker Cookbook, or her Better Homes and Gardens, or Good Housekeeping Cookbook in your hands is better than nostalgic. And cooking some of those dishes for your children will pass on a great tradition.
