Family Recipes

recipe5Some of the happiest times of my childhood were the moments I spent in the kitchen with my Mom or my Grandma on my Dad’s side.  They both loved to cook and they were both really good at it. Neither used recipe books, measuring cups, or any sort of guide other than that of their own memories of meals made when they were children. In fact the only reasons I myself know how to cook many of the recipes I will be sharing are because I paid a lot of attention in those kitchens I cherished so much.

Over the years at different times I am asked by one of my five brothers or their spouses or even by my own grown children how to make this or that so I have decided it’s time to put them on paper, err well you know what I mean! If I don’t do this, then many of these recipes will be lost forever after I am gone and that would be a sad shame. Family recipes are meant to live on; passed down from generation to generation.

In the warmth of those kitchens there was only love for one another and the food we were preparing so I share that love now with all of you. I hope you will find great pleasure in our family recipes and the stories that surround them. I will be adding them periodically; including new recipes of my own, my children and other family members. No recipe is set in stone as like love, our tastes all vary so feel free to experiment and make them your own.
