The whole idea of doing a book of recipes came to me when I came across so many of my mother's handwritten recipes. A friend of mine, Cindy, was looking through my mother's notebooks, vintage recipe books, and handwritten notes and suggested that I keep them in a book. I selected only a few pages of what is contained in the Recipes and Memories book to share in this post. I hope that you enjoy my narrative pages (a trip down 50's memory lane), the scanned vintage photos, and the recipes. You really should click each photo to enlarge so you can read and see the detail on each page. I'm joining Jenny Matlock's blog for Alphabe-Thursday and the letter "R".
The Dedication Page to my mother and grandmothers.
Four pages of childhood memories of our kitchen, family get-togethers, tons of food and love.
Some Italian recipes
A staple in almost every kitchen~~~~~The Apron!
My mother's tattered apron...my grandmother may have worn it too.
So many happy photo memories
I really want my grandchildren to know part of their heritage and what it was like for me to grow up in the 50's, therefore, you can see the two children at the bottom of this last page. This is not the last page in the memory book but it is the last page of this post. I have 3 more typed pages for my grandchildren and a page that I have handwritten to them. I hope that when they are older, all of this will make sense and they will treasure my memories as I have.
