For the past eternity, my Love and I have been putting her mother's recipes into a recipe site called Tastebook. We finally finished with all 115 recipes, only to realize that we are limited to 100. The hardest part was whittling down those 15 recipes that wouldn't make the cut. Would it be the Cinnamon Flop? No, that one is from my Love's great grandmother. What about one of the 10 fish recipes? Nope, they LOVE fish.
Now it's off to the presses. I'm so excited for her mother to see all of her recipes in print and in one place. No more searching for her favorites among little pieces of paper and recipe cards.
Here's one that I can't wait to make this summer!
