Well, turns out I wasn't the only one who has been having problems pulling up info from older blog posts. It's apparently been a "blogger" problem, but as usual my computer guru daughter solved the problem for me.
So if you wish, you may follow this link which will take you to my original blog post on making my mom's fruitcake complete with pictures which will give you more of an idea of what our traditional fruitcake is all about.
Should you be having the same problem as I was, for a good glass of dry wine my daughter will be glad to make a house call and fix your system, too.*
*I just made that up. It would probably take more than a glass of wine for her to make the trip. On the other hand, maybe not. She does love to travel . . .
