My mother, Louise Brueggeman Krausman, had Granny's noodle maker. As my brother Russell tells me, when
we moved to Washington, D. C. our Uncle Harold Darkow came to visit us and saw that the noodle maker was broken. He took it back to Ohio and fixed it in his machine shop and brought it back the next visit. I can remember my mother making noodles and laying the noodle dough out on the dining room table to dry enough to push through the machine. We thought that was the neatest thing ever!
About the quilt-When my brother was sick in latter years our Aunt Emma sent this quilt of which mom thought was so very special and it was on her bed. She would often tell us different stories of when she and Emma were children and would run her hand over the quilt in the fondest of ways.
Hocus-Pocus Buns:" Take your favorite yeast bread receipe and after the first rising take a marshmellow and roll it in (melted butter) and then in a mixture of ground nuts, sugar and cinnamon and then put your yeast dough around the marshmallow and let rise the second time after putting it in a greased muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. You can sprinkle some sugar on top before baking.
Aunt Emma and mom would always make these buns for us kids, we thought these were really fun for when you would bake them the marshmallow would melt and when you bit into them, you would get a mouthful of air. Also, these are a fun thing to make with your children and/or grandchildren.
Wow, when I googled Hocus Pocus Buns, a ton of recipes came up. Here is one if you are interested:
