Some random and some not-so-random thoughts on family history.

The Latest Project

Younger daughter, during her visit here, asked me for a few recipes. Then she went through my cookbook program (Master Cook, version 8) and asked for copies of everything. So for her and older daughter I am putting together cookbooks with recipes from their grandmothers, some of my friends, one of my sisters and me! However, I am doing it in scrapbook fashion, so it is taking a while. The kitchen table is a disaster area. It might get cleaned by the end of the month. Maybe that will mean I won't have to cook? At any rate, the girls are getting great heritage cookbooks from their mom.

In the meantime, I get to reminisce about some great food and plan some menus for the new year!

  1. What a great project!You will be so glad that you took the time to make this gift of love.

    A few years ago I put together a family cookbook -- recipes that we associated with a specific person -- expected at family gatherings -- memories of dishes of our childhood. Great fun! And still used by most of the family. My granddaughter even took her copy with her to Korea.

  2. It is. Some of our family recipes have been lost, and I am really sad about that.
