Recipe for Happiness

From a very old recipe book, “Old Time Recipes, for modern day cooks” by Jewell Kirby Fitzhugh, published in 1976 by The Ozarks Mountaineer, Branson Missouri.


  • Take 2 heaping cups of patience
  • 1 heartful of love
  • 2 handsful of generosity,
  • a dash of laughter,
  • and 1 headful of understanding.


  • Sprinkle generously with kindness.
  • Add plenty of faith,
  • and mix well.


  1. Spread over the period of a lifetime and serve everybody you meet.
