    I’m looking for a lost recipe of Italian spaghetti & meatballs. I had them on 1958 recipe cards along with the Lasagne & Spaghetti & still am making them but I’ve lost the one of spaghetti & meatballs. I would love to find it as I wanted to make this recipe. If you know of this one, please E-mail me with it. Thank You. Vi

    Hi, I have a set of these cards that belonged to my mom. She is 87 and lives a long way from me. She had lost the card for a certain type cookie which she says was good and not too
    sweet. We think it was either Italian or
    Greek. She says the name started with
    a “c” but that’s all she remembers,
    except that it was in this collection.
    Would love to find for her, thanks for
    any help you might be able to give
