This is a cookbook devoted to a loving mother and grandmother. Food was always the staple of our family gatherings. Mom held high regard to the finest of ingredients, presentation and of course overall taste. It made my mom happy to see people enjoy the foods she prepared. Food was in a way her way of reaching out to people. She had recipes that she made for certain people and we all had our favorites. I hope I have enclosed everyone's favorite in attempts to let her cooking legend live on. Also included our some other family recipes that she enjoyed.
I am a healthly 39 yr old. woman who has been married for almost 18 years to a fabulous man. We have two wonderful children. Justin, 12 and Jenna 9. I am so lucky to have so many loving, caring family members. I was blessed with a mother that was beautiful in all senses. She was my friend and I miss her dearly. She was a couragous lady who had many hurdles in life but perservered until March 13th 2008 when she was too tired to fight anymore. My mom, Frances Paquette, died a hero in my mind.
