It probably all started when she was about 20 years old and thinking of getting married. So she bought this cookbook.
It remained in her kitchen her whole life. I remember consulting it every once in a while. I really like the book because of its tabs for each chapter.
After my mom died, we had a Celebration of Life for her. We made this little recipe book to hand out as a remembrance. And we served all of her favorite dishes at the celebration.
|The book contained all her best recipes|
Her best ever recipe was for Lemon Meringue pie. It was even better than Marie Callenders.
You can tell she made it a lot because of all the stains on her recipe card.
Here's the recipe for the meringue. You can't have the pie without that.
I sure miss my mom's cooking. But it's nice that I still have her recipe book and all her recipe cards. They're a wonderful reminder of her.
C'mon over to Sepia Saturday if you smell something good coming from there and want to read other stories about kitchens, cooking and food.
