Cooking from Memories


I have always loved to cook. Well, maybe less so lately with only two people to feed. Thankfully, my husband has begun to enjoy the heat of the kitchen.

Over the years, we have collected a variety of cookbooks. Even after parting with some of them before moving to our new townhouse, we still have two full bookcases: one upstairs, Upstairs bookcase




and one smaller one on the first floor near the kitchen. downstairs bookcareAnd we have a three-ring binder stuffed with old favorites we have cut out from newspapers and magazines.

I have kept my Mom’s old hand-written recipes mom's recipeand some of her cookbooks,'s cookbooks

In planning our family Christmas dinner, which is at our house each year, we are searching for meal plans. Of course, we can always Google recipes but how much more fun to find those with memories attached?
