My recipes celebrate grandmothers. The pages of my book contain many of my childhood memories, quotations from famous people and not so famous (third grade students), poetry, nicknames for grandmothers and recipes from Grandma’s country kitchen. It offers some insights and reflections on being a grandmother.
Sometimes a certain aroma from the kitchen, the wonderful fragrance from a bouquet of flowers or the taste of homemade chocolate cake or pumpkin pie triggers a memory. Then I am transported back to another time and place where my life was more simple and carefree — my childhood days at Grandma’s house. After all these years, I can still picture her standing in the kitchen, always wearing an apron and dust cap. She was probably too busy with her daily chores to realize the influence she was having on me and that she was making a lifetime of memories for me.
