This book was so much fun to create, starting with the process of selecting the recipes to include.
Mom collects recipes from everywhere and loves to go through them, remembering how great they were, or how delicious they would be ... IF she decided to make them.
My daughter, Kristi, and I were visiting and decided to spend some quality time with Mom and "enjoy" some of her recipes together. It occurred to me that we could put her favorites into a book, but the problem was slimming down the collection (she has hundreds).
We decided to narrow down to only ones that she's prepared - her favorites.
The thought of copying them over was just too daunting, so I thought of scanning them "as is", which also added a personal touch. Most are on scratch paper, note pads or stationery from someone she knew or met at a party, which I think adds to the fun.
The recipes are all good and the book is a unique reflection of her and her style of cooking - simple, tasty and worth repeating.
