I grew up with some fabulous cooks in my family – my mom, dad, and grandmother – they were all amazing!
My dad and grandmother were “make it up as it goes” cooks, whereas my mom really went by the recipe book. As different as they were, the food was always spectacular.
My mom used a lot of recipes from the Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook, and I recently purchased a vintage copy to have as well.
I find so much pleasure in writing notes, edits, etc.. in a cookbook so that I can remember the wonderful meals I’ve experienced throughout the years. This cookbook is a treasure I hope to pass on some day!
