This collection of recipes was started many decades ago by my Mother. Both friends and family gave her recipes that they had tried and liked, and she also found recipes from various other sources. These recipes frequently made our family meals exciting by having something new to try on a fairly regular basis.

This recipe collection was originally contained in a small wooden recipe box, which it quickly outgrew. My Mother then moved the recipes into a shoebox which could hold them easily. All of the recipe cards are currently kept spread between two shoe boxes and even they are getting to be quite full.

Following in my Mother's footsteps, I continue to collect recipes from many sources, including my family and friends. New recipes are added to this ongoing collection as frequently as possible. This is my cookbook and I invite you to make it yours as well. My motto when it comes to eating is simple: I want food in my food! Yes, there are great recipes to be found here, and many of them. Enjoy!
