First Recipe from Grandma's Recipe Box

Well since summer is officially here and many places are hot, including here in the Northeast I thought we should start with a classic refreshing thirst quencher.  When there is no better place to sit than an open porch with a warm breeze blowing, the classic New England Raspberry Lime Rickey is my drink of choice.  The recipe could not be easier.  It must be served very cold with ice cubes. 


  • 1 lime
  • 8 fluid ounces of plain seltzer (soda water)
  • 1 (1.5 fluid ounce) jigger raspberry syrup


  1. Fill a tall glass with ice. Squeeze entire juice of 1 lime into a glass, and then drop the lime into the glass. Fill glass nearly to the top with seltzer & top with raspberry syrup.                                                        (Other syrups may be used in place of raspberry if so desired.  It can be made into an adult cocktail by adding alcohol, but I am a purist and prefer the above traditional recipe.)

Our Father's Day Winner is . . .

We received many great Father's Day entries but none better than the one from Nance Blair Stultz honoring a World War II veteran who stepped in as a second father after her dad had passed away. It is a pleasure to say thank you to Mr. Jack Radin for serving our country and continuing his heroism long after the war was over.

"A few years ago I got a phone call from a stranger who had some information for me. . .it changed my life in a good way!

Mr. Jack Radin, a Gentleman from NY, contacted me via a WWII army site from where I was looking for any information about my Daddy, Harold R. Blair.  Mr. Radin and I had some nice chats on the phone and he sent me photographs of he and my Dad from June 1945; (from when they were in the war together).  He also wrote me a letter and told me how the men in the Company M, 100th Division, 399th Regiment liked and respected my Dad. . .
I had never seen those photos of my Dad and the information that he shared with me about my Father are priceless!  Mr. Radin is indeed in line for a great big Happy Father's Day for bringing memories of my Dad (who passed away. . .) and he even told me that I could have a whole UNIT that would take me for a daughter!

What a wonderful person!  I would be delighted to honor him with some Grandma's Soup! and recognition!

Thank you for your consideration.
