During the summer of 1979, I had graduated from high school and was preparing to head out to college where I would be “grown up”. Unfortunately, it also meant that I would leave home and have to rely on my own cooking skills. So I began the quest to copy Mom’s recipes so I could cook them for myself.
And now it is April 2012. I estimate that since I was married I have cooked approximately 10000 dinners (give or take a few). I remember Mom saying that she absolutely hated having to figure out what was for dinner, and now I know why.
Chuck took over the cookbook next, and formed the cookbook into a collaboration between all the family members. I still use his hard copy to this day when I recreate beloved family meals.
In an attempt to at least try to enter the 21st century I am now taking the cookbook online with this blog. I hope to make it available for all in the family to post their recipes, as well as comment on other family member’s cooking.
Hopefully when my kids need a recipe for dinner, they will have a headstart on the rest of the world. Enjoy!
