Keep in the Family

Renee headshotI just got back from a long awaited trip to visit my sister who lives in the Rockies. My cousin was also there and she had driven in from Illinois.

In the course of a week we caught up on old times and revisited cherished memories while we watched old Super 8 movies and poured over slides that my mom and dad had taken in the 50s of our whole extended family. In the midst of all this wonderful nostalgia my sister walked in with a book. "Look at this," she said.

I kind of got bug eyed. It was my mother's old Joy of Cooking written by Irma S. Rombauer that was published in 1943.

This was the 4th printing. The first printing was in 1931.


Safely tucked into the pages was the lost recipe for my grandmother's wonderful homemade corn relish.
